The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, economically powerful 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 22.439 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.

Only government officials may operate computers, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, anti-tourism militias patrol the borders, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 189th in The Alliance of Dictators and 114,502nd in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -1,770 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
