The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.48 billion Northern Borlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken 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 31,234 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 992,195 Greenbacks, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Northern Borland's pristine beaches, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBNB Governor goes house hunting, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, and President and CEO's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand. 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 1st in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 52,347.56 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
