The Commonwealth of Borielo is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 244 million Borielons love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Borielon economy, worth 12.8 trillion evoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 52,340 evoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the Borielon Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borielo's national animal is the osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Borielo is ranked 52,937th in the world and 1,683rd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,018.06 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
