The Empire of East Xibeiguo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by James Bäcker with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.188 billion Xibei 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, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dhaka. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Xibei economy, worth a remarkable 1,225 trillion Takas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 86,371 Takas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bars are packed at all hours, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of tigers and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Xibeiguo's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

East Xibeiguo is ranked 21,484th in the world and 21st in Africa for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 234.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
