The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 37.611 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 225 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 5,997 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 5th in the world and 1st in Wysteria for Lowest Crime Rates, with 441.67 law-abiding acts per hour.
