The United Cities of Western Borderlands is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Cerinivan Klomin with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.664 billion borderlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient borderlandian economy, worth 450 trillion Lonis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 123,017 Lonis, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Loni battlesuits, and convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Western Borderlands's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Western Borderlands is ranked 18th in Atlantian Oceania and 8,279th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
