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 22.48 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 Uranium Mining industries.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. 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 1st in Capitalist Paradise and 7th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 43 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
