The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, flagrant waste-dumping, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.666 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 31,516 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 995,269 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,836,573 per year while the poor average 118,287, a ratio of 40.9 to 1.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 10,211th in the world and 43rd in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Drug Use, scoring 109.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
