The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, aversion to nipples, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.193 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 32,285 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 1,002,868 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,410,639 per year while the poor average 96,461, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

There's a bustling black market for vegetables, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. 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 171,757th in the world and 325th in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.9 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
