The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.984 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 43,353 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 1,112,091 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,971,021 per year while the poor average 108,073, a ratio of 55.2 to 1.

Politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Northern Borland of supplying extremist groups. 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 258,552nd in the world and 237th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -175.98 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
