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 sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.541 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 39,438 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 1,079,294 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,928,146 per year while the poor average 99,875, a ratio of 59.4 to 1.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Northern Borland" at foreigners, the fattest folk in Northern Borland look to be the happiest ones, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. 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 18th in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 31,148.45 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
