The Land of Borovan3 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alex Chung with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.623 billion Borovan3ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Canterbury. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.4%.

The all-consuming Borovan3ian economy, worth 192 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 118,366 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 454,227 per year while the poor average 21,265, a ratio of 21.4 to 1.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Alex Chung, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borovan3's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic.

Borovan3 is ranked 7,535th in the world and 1st in No Girlfriend for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,959.12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
