The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, prohibition of alcohol, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.414 billion East Borlandists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lair. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient East Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 31,943 trillion Slaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is a breathtaking 877,218 Slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,283,286 per year while the poor average 39,860, a ratio of 157 to 1.

Requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, and the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. East Borland's national animal is the Gila Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oppression.

East Borland is ranked 16,683rd in the world and 20th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 15.24 Bank.
