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 complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.736 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 42,947 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 1,108,720 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,972,091 per year while the poor average 107,010, a ratio of 55.8 to 1.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, both criminals and civilians are DOA, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, and commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives. 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 20,677th in the world and 79th in Capitalist Paradise for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
