Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of East Xibeiguo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by James Bäcker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.943 billion Xibei are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 frighteningly efficient Xibei economy, worth a remarkable 1,595 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 and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 178,419 Takas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, main battle tanks stalk the woods of East Xibeiguo in search of tigers, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in East Xibeiguo, and the government has enacted freedom of information. 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.

East Xibeiguo is ranked 24th in Africa and 60,661st in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 2 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
