The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.636 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 31,478 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 995,010 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,709,873 per year while the poor average 124,307, a ratio of 37.9 to 1.

Politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Greenbacks, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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 2nd in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 99.78 Workforce Participation Rate.
