OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.94 billion Northern Borlandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commerce City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology industries.

City sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Greenback.

Northern Borland is ranked 392nd in Capitalist Paradise and 116,499th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring -18 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
