The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.546 billion Northern Borlandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 37,867 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 1,065,316 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,832,213 per year while the poor average 99,288, a ratio of 58.7 to 1.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', and patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Northern Borland" at foreigners. 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 229,609th in the world and 313th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.37 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
