Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.679 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. 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 19,005 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 802,630 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,837,473 per year while the poor average 59,897, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

The Treasury and Finance Ministry have been outsourced, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Commerce City, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 443rd in Capitalist Paradise and 128,071st in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -1,294 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
