The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 34.702 billion Northern Borlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 36,567 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 1,053,770 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,499,006 per year while the poor average 108,697, a ratio of 50.6 to 1.

Prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. 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 58th in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 64,641.43 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
