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 suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.709 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 18,170 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 800,126 Greenbacks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,137,126 per year while the poor average 11,942, a ratio of 597 to 1.

Cities are engulfed by smog, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. 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 1st in Capitalist Paradise and 1st in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 29 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
