Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.504 billion East Borlandists are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lair. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient East Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 21,786 trillion Slaves a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 764,339 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,652,452 per year while the poor average 93,799, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, charity no longer begins at home, and a popular East Borlandian saying is 'wishing upon a fallen jet engine'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. East Borland's national animal is the Gila Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oppression.

East Borland is ranked 161,003rd in the world and 155th in The Alliance of Dictators for Nudest, with 0.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
