The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, enslaved workforce, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.13 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 21,844 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 776,558 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,658,576 per year while the poor average 97,874, a ratio of 37.4 to 1.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically, theoretical science is only theoretical, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 179,756th in the world and 198th in The Alliance of Dictators for Longest Average Lifespans, with 14 Years.
