The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 37.021 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 156 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 4,223 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, and nudity is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 231,117th in the world and 76th in Wysteria for Most Developed, scoring 30.44 on the Human Development Index.
