The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, public floggings, and national health service. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 36.802 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 537 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 14,599 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Deep South Borland, and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. 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 53,969th in the world and 23rd in Wysteria for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,808.65 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
