The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory vegetarianism, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, devout population of 35.151 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 445 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 12,670 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tabloids coo over His Supreme Holy Eminence's expected child, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, many former slaves are finding out there is such a thing as a free lunch, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep South Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep South Borland is ranked 93,521st in the world and 28th in Wysteria for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,089.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
