Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.784 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commerce City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 23,837 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 889,972 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,147,476 per year while the poor average 73,303, a ratio of 70.2 to 1.

Elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Northern Borland's mid-life crisis, and groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety'. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 177,541st in the world and 302nd in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.56 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
