Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.359 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Industry, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 23,123 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 877,252 Greenbacks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,134,657 per year while the poor average 43,159, a ratio of 142 to 1.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. 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 17th in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 67,437.73 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
