The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 37.636 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 227 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 6,035 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is giving peace a chance, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, all Deep South Borlandeese love the taste of self-sufficiency, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. 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 9,953rd in the world and 4th in Wysteria for Most Conservative, scoring 89 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
