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 irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.251 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 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.

Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, only government officials may operate computers, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 207th in The Alliance of Dictators and 111,915th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -26,253 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
