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 digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.992 billion Northern Borlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 31,991 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 999,990 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,351,950 per year while the poor average 97,843, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, Northern Borlandian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 175,816th in the world and 326th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -96.49 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
