The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, parental licensing program, and national health service. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 39.055 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 345 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 8,839 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Deep South Borlandeese, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep South Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep South Borland is ranked 271,034th in the world and 80th in Wysteria for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -2478.71 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
