The Kingdom of Zxortanites is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 6.78 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 22%, 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 arms industry is strictly regulated, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 1st in The International Radiated Wasteland and 1,802nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 228 Insults Per Minute (net).
