The Peoples Republic of Borrin Quen is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.86 billion Borrin Quenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quensington. The average income tax rate is 41.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Borrin Quenian economy, worth 246 trillion Quins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 63,800 Quins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the government is avowedly secular, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borrin Quen's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Borrin Quen is ranked 5,816th in the world and 8th in Groland for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.95 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
