Location: Grand Alliance
The Federated Democratic States of Xanthal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 24.495 billion Xanthalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olink. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Xanthalian economy, worth a remarkable 3,367 trillion quinaults a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,470 quinaults, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, people unhook their phones at night to escape a never-ending barrage of phone calls, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million quinaults of property damage, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xanthal's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
