OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Queen's State of Xp is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.091 billion Xpians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Religion & Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 12%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Pizza Delivery.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, voting is voluntary, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is a problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Xp's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the betale.

Xp is ranked 180th in Forever Silence and 74,726th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 0 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
