The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, fear of technology, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.986 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 23,781 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 Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 793,076 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,009,328 per year while the poor average 87,242, a ratio of 46.0 to 1.

Kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, obesity is a thing of the past due to the nation's sickening cuisine, and drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government. 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 9th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 53,133.86 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
