The United Cities of Western Borderlands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cerinivan Klomin with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.453 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 government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail industries.

The government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a 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 7,439th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
