It has a very moderate coastal climate with humid summers and a winter dominated by the rainy season. Travel by ferry is easy and cheap thanks to the Borphee River.
Government in this region is quite a baffling system. The city of Borphee itself is run by an elected mayor. The Province is administered by a staff of part-time volunteer managers, whose decisions are ratified at least three times a year, but not more than every other week, by a series of local forums. Those who purport to know say that these forums have resulted in Greater Borphee County Penal Codes, the recitation of which could bore a listener to death.
