Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.832 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Industry, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 22,313 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 863,788 Greenbacks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,444,699 per year while the poor average 33,902, a ratio of 190 to 1.

Buck racing stadiums are open 24/7, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, the country is effectively ruled by large corporations and business consultants, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 18th in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 30,683.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
