The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.88 billion Northern Borlandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 38,372 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 1,069,456 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,723,729 per year while the poor average 104,639, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

Chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Northern Borlandian restaurants, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 17,099th in the world and 62nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 14.69 Bank.
