The Borderlands of Paranoia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by CK Flynn with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.065 billion Paranoians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psychosis. The average income tax rate is 58.9%.

The powerhouse Paranoid economy, worth 190 trillion krónas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 92,298 krónas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paranoia's national animal is the crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Delusionalism.

Paranoia is ranked 14,181st in the world and 445th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 10.82 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
