The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.812 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 on the agenda. 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 workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, and builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction. 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 1st in The Alliance of Dictators and 56th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 37 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
