The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.709 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 39,703 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 1,081,586 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,751,840 per year while the poor average 107,261, a ratio of 53.6 to 1.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, clandestine emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. 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 254th in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 53,019.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
