The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.564 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 37,894 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 1,065,541 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,804,943 per year while the poor average 100,369, a ratio of 57.8 to 1.

Eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, and people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute. 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 3rd in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 99.84 Workforce Participation Rate.
