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 flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.31 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 22,076 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 779,815 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,614,527 per year while the poor average 101,302, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

Tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, fake beard sales are on the rise amongst female commuters, major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, and military service 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 24th in the world and 1st in The Alliance of Dictators for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 2,515.65 on the Hayek Index.
