The Borderlands of Old North Fish is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Duke Derwent Castell with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.426 billion, 5.83 billion of whom are zombies, 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Commerce are on the agenda. 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.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, Amnesty Interregional has condemned Old North Fish for ignoring crimes against humanity, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. 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 4th in The Free Interstellar Republic and 91,745th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
