The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 33.054 billion East Borlandists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lair. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient East Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 26,613 trillion Slaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is a breathtaking 805,143 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,077,948 per year while the poor average 145,540, a ratio of 21.1 to 1.

The jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, many East Borlandists twitch nervously at the sight of nuns, teddy bears and pajamas have replaced briefcases and suits in East Borland's offices, and it is unwise to be a poet even if things rhyme and you don't know it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. East Borland's national animal is the Gila Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oppression.

East Borland is ranked 127,633rd in the world and 87th in The Alliance of Dictators for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 54.29 Workforce Participation Rate.
