The Borderlands of Old North Fish is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Duke Derwent Castell with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.628 billion Fishians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metroscale. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, torture is illegal, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old North Fish's national animal is the last Northern Speckled Bigfoot, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Scale.

Old North Fish is ranked 1st in The Free Interstellar Republic and 17,903rd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 16 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
