The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.141 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 38,801 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 1,073,604 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,682,291 per year while the poor average 107,538, a ratio of 52.8 to 1.

Lottery winners spend most of their money on security, half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and the secret ingredient is love (and MSG). 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 Largest Retail Industry, scoring 113,173.01 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
