OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Zxortanites is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.875 billion Zxortanitesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zxortanites City. The average income tax rate is 12%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zxortanites's national animal is the wingless eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the zxort.

Zxortanites is ranked 3rd in The International Radiated Wasteland and 52,668th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 94 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
