The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 34.917 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 36,911 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 1,057,120 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,806,353 per year while the poor average 97,823, a ratio of 59.4 to 1.

Newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, organ donation is compulsory, and human pie shops continue to receive shipments of meat from Spleeny Rodd's. 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 3rd in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Most Avoided, scoring 8,748.34 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
