The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.516 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 37,820 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 1,064,873 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,936,667 per year while the poor average 95,361, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Commerce City Times is sold out, Northern Borlandian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. 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 1,108th in the world and 6th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 63,483.83 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
