The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.168 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 37,283 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 1,060,166 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,584,657 per year while the poor average 107,247, a ratio of 52.1 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Commerce City, small shoes often wash up on the beach, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. 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 9,057th in the world and 32nd in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Poor Incomes, with 107,247.37 Standard Monetary Units.
