The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.631 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 31,467 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 994,821 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,496,862 per year while the poor average 135,282, a ratio of 33.2 to 1.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, the government is outsourcing itself, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and 'Let's Get It On' has jumped to #1 on the billboard charts. 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 58,595th in the world and 97th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Extreme, scoring 22.31 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
