The Borderlands of Of the Hinterlands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 727 million the Hinterlanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pumaville. The average income tax rate is 29.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong the Hinterlandsian economy, worth 53.0 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 72,956 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Pumaville Times is sold out, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of the Hinterlands's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Of the Hinterlands is ranked 55,302nd in the world and 2nd in Holy Empire of Britannia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,683.8 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
