The Team of Bortalandet is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nelg Nillyg with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.617 billion Bortas 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbero. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Borta economy, worth 381 trillion Flingas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,533 Flingas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bortalandet's national animal is the Polar Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bortalandet is ranked 203,441st in the world and 1st in United Provinces of Nerike for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -20.4 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
