The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.07 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

The adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery. 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 208th in The Alliance of Dictators and 112,185th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1,720 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
