The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.136 billion Northern Borlandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 37,231 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 1,059,645 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,467,116 per year while the poor average 111,880, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

Charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 31st in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Secular, with 99.39 Atheism Rate.
