Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.752 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 21,337 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 768,879 Slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,945,963 per year while the poor average 48,453, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Women who display their ankles are shunned by society, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. 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 167th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 16,347.63 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
