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 population of 22.32 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, liberal, 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 CEO of Laws Incorporated must sign off on all new bills, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Greenback.

Northern Borland is ranked 424th in Capitalist Paradise and 120,479th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -2,385 Smiles Per Hour (net).
