OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.068 billion 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, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Northern Borland's many privately-owned prisons, the Northern Borland Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. 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 2nd in Capitalist Paradise and 19th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 47 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
