The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and lack of airports. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 36.68 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 532 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 14,507 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Deep South Borland after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, foreign musicians that His Supreme Holy Eminence dislikes are turned away at the border, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep South Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep South Borland is ranked 243,871st in the world and 71st in Wysteria for Most Secular, with zero Atheism Rate.
