The Peoples Republic of Borrin Quen is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Jose with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.037 billion Borrinqueños are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Rico. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Borrin Quenian economy, worth 766 trillion Dólar Borrins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 84,817 Dólar Borrins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

To say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, Borrin Quenian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Puerto Rico Times is sold out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borrin Quen's national animal is the Coquí, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Universalism.

Borrin Quen is ranked 232,256th in the world and 8,915th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -4.69 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
