The Unitary Republic of Borinsa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rasko Horvoti with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.542 billion Borinsans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosgrava. The average income tax rate is 68.6%.

The thriving Borinsan economy, worth 452 trillion Borins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,677 Borins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and bailiffs must face down a fusillade of depleted uranium rounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borinsa's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholisism.

Borinsa is ranked 27,413th in the world and 1st in The Balkans for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 179.8 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
