Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.717 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 22,096 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 769,457 Slaves, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,000,779 per year while the poor average 79,965, a ratio of 50.0 to 1.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. 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 118,014th in the world and 160th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 524.84 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
