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 frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.625 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 31,460 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 994,791 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,496,726 per year while the poor average 135,278, a ratio of 33.2 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Commerce City, global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Northern Borland of supplying extremist groups, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. 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 171,160th in the world and 281st in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -79.55 Effective Tax Rate.
