The Federation of Borin is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 387 million Borinians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Borinian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Boroes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 67,112 Boroes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 359,513 per year while the poor average 6,553, a ratio of 54.9 to 1.

Metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Borin's national animal is the Strike, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Borin is ranked 51,936th in the world and 10th in Erchion for Most Cultured, scoring 71 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
