The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.313 billion Deep South Borlandeese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 353 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 8,998 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, pre-eclampsia in pregnancy is treated with encouragement to take "long soothing walks", atheists and evolutionary biologists are fleeing the country like rats from a sinking ship, and the judicial system legislates morality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep South Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep South Borland is ranked 258,005th in the world and 79th in Wysteria for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -122.59 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
