Is the Border meant to keep people out or in?

Look around the world and history. Borders have been used to keep both people out of a region and also in it. Most do both. Any worthy dictator knows that the first thing he must do is secure the borders. That way it doesn't matter how oppressed you are (North Korea), you have no choice but to accept it.

Also keeping people out is an interesting concept. Personally if I were to pursue a dictatorship role that would be on the top of my list. You don't want any "variables" coming in creating "crazy" ideas of freedom and stuff. That would be no good.
