The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.095 billion East Borlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lair. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and military service is compulsory. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. East Borland's national animal is the Gila Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Oppression, and its currency is the Slave.

East Borland is ranked 214th in The Alliance of Dictators and 112,295th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -518 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
