The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.202 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 30,803 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 987,237 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,096,569 per year while the poor average 69,308, a ratio of 88.0 to 1.

People all over Northern Borland are dying of 'Mad Buck Disease', citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, the CEO of Laws Incorporated must sign off on all new bills, and much of Northern Borland's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. 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 99th in the world and 3rd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 27,103.78 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
