The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.082 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 38,702 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 1,072,633 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,548,388 per year while the poor average 112,659, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Northern Borland's deadly femme fatales, amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 241,596th in the world and 339th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -103.25 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
