Borman Empire

Population18.971 billion

LeaderEmperor Bhalk


The War Machine of Borman Empire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Bhalk with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.971 billion Borman Imperials are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bormanian economy, worth a remarkable 7,627 trillion Denariis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 402,036 Denariis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,659,229 per year while the poor average 23,430, a ratio of 113 to 1.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Midgets and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Borman Empire's national animal is the Midget, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bhalkanism.

Borman Empire is ranked 16,269th in the world and 16th in Gholgoth for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
