OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.855 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.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Northern Borland's radio stations, new urban roads are threatening city parks, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. 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 1st in Capitalist Paradise and 12th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 2,348.9 Insults Per Minute (net).
