The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.408 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 23,012 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 782,536 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,966,034 per year while the poor average 85,650, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, 90% of active duty EBAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through His Supreme Eminence's window to draw attention to their issues. 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 1st in the world and 1st in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Avoided, scoring 9,726.54 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
