The Republic of New Xran is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 540 million New Xranians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.8%.

The sizeable but inefficient New Xranian economy, worth 22.8 trillion Xias a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,213 Xias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and immigrants who don't like the taste of New Xranian Turnip Chips are immediately deported. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Xran's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Xran is ranked 82,815th in the world and 3,752nd in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,236.76 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
