The Holy Empire of Bornodia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kompi the First with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.597 billion Bornodians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solitude. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bornodian economy, worth 157 trillion golden septims a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,625 golden septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cases of disease among the civilian population dwindle as civilian population dwindles, video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, diplomatic cables about Kompi the First have suddenly been very flattering, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bornodia's national animal is the Compycus Toticus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Evangelionism.

Bornodia is ranked 56,829th in the world and 3,664th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.76 percentage of bribes refused.
