Borduria is a fictional military state in the adventures of Tintin

Not much is known about Borduria, since it has been rather closed country. Borduria’s capital is Szhod.

Borduria seems to have a preference for military governments. In 1939, its political system was reminiscent of fascist or national socialist[?] government. It unsuccessfully attempted to take over its neighbour Syldavia.

By 1956, Borduria was reminiscent of a stereotypical Eastern Block country but with its own military dictator, Plekszy-Gladz (and his whiskers). Bordurian government was still looking for superior weapons to impose their will upon the world. No wonder, since even their landmines were defective.

In 1976, the Bordurian government supported the current ruling general of San Theodoros, Tapioca, and even sent him military advisors.
