The Empire of East Xibeiguo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by James Bäcker with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.839 billion Xibei are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dhaka. The income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant Xibei economy, worth 133 trillion Takas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 12,306 Takas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, graffiti graces every city's streets, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Xibeiguo's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
