The Kingdom of Zxortanites is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed population of 5.981 billion 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zxortanites City. The average income tax rate is 7%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime 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 120,684th in the world for Best Weather, with -593 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
