The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.52 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government 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 25,570 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, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 786,315 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,253,887 per year while the poor average 124,749, a ratio of 26.1 to 1.

Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, Air East Borland tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, and there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes. 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 190th in the world and 4th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 48,237.52 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
