The Team of Bortalandet is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nelg Nillyg with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.158 billion Bortas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbero. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Borta economy, worth 92.3 trillion Flingas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,728 Flingas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bortalandet's national animal is the Polar Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bortalandet is ranked 11,386th in the world and 282nd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.3 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
