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 absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.349 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.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Greenbacks of property damage. 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 437th in Capitalist Paradise and 121,388th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -672 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
