Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.18 billion Northern Borlandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commerce City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 26,098 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 926,151 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,163,292 per year while the poor average 82,938, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Northern Borlandian politics is literally a blood sport, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, and prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 32nd in the world and 3rd in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Crime Rates, with 220.71 Crimes Per Hour.
