The Holy Kingdom of Federal States of Xathuecia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gallio Majus with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 8.351 billion Xathues 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aequalitas. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Xathue economy, worth 719 trillion Verums a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,166 Verums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and the youth vote is only counted when kindergarten teachers ask who drew the best picture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Federal States of Xathuecia's national animal is the Rhino, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
