Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Xerithian Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Matthew with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.563 billion Xerithian Empireans 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, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philos. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The sizeable but stagnant Xerithian Empirean economy, worth 34.7 trillion Zreks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 7,600 Zreks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students cut up leftover Zreks during Arts and Crafts, the Xerithian Empire Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', the Xerithian Empire Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and all industry is owned and run by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xerithian Empire's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xerithian Empire is ranked 33rd in Europe and 4,723rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 19 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
