The United Cities of Western Borderlands is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bryin Alcado II with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.779 billion borderlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology industries.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, birth rates have hit an all-time low, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. Western Borderlands's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Loni.

Western Borderlands is ranked 17th in Atlantian Oceania and 12,463rd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 28.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
