The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.998 billion Northern Borlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 32,000 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 1,000,073 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,484,008 per year while the poor average 92,875, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Northern Borland, the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, and all streets are privately owned toll roads. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 175,901st in the world and 329th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -170.76 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
