The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its fear of technology, avant-garde cinema, and daily referendums. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 39.089 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — 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 average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 345 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 8,840 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Sacrosanct City for fear of causing a fuss, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, and people on the brink of death are put through unwanted and stressful procedures. 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 272,484th in the world and 66th in Wysteria for Most Patriotic, with 0.36 flags saluted per person per day.
