The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.215 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commerce City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 30,838 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 987,927 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,100,831 per year while the poor average 69,356, a ratio of 88.0 to 1.

It is often said that only President and CEO could bring down Dàguó, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 47th in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 162,770.03 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
