The Team of Bortalandet is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nelg Nillyg with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.05 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbero. The average income tax rate is 59.0%.

The powerhouse Borta economy, worth 197 trillion Flingas 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 96,337 Flingas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 53,365th in the world and 2,093rd in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,812.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
