The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 34.931 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 435 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 12,472 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, organ donation rates have hit a new low, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and Sacrosanct City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in Wysteria. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep South Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep South Borland is ranked 28,721st in the world and 5th in Wysteria for Most Extreme, scoring 32.89 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
