The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.018 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 32,025 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 1,000,223 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,801,873 per year while the poor average 81,831, a ratio of 70.9 to 1.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone. 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 175,528th in the world and 335th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Inclusive, scoring 2.95 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
