The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.665 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.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', the government is avowedly atheist, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. 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 181st in The Alliance of Dictators and 113,566th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -182 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
