|Leader||Totally Not Zeritan|
The Zeritan Puppet of Northeast Xeritae is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Totally Not Zeritan with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The quiet, industrious population of 1.371 billion Northeast Xeritaeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keaner. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Northeast Xeritaean economy, worth 45.2 trillion Derndys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,945 Derndys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and renewable energy projects have ground to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northeast Xeritae's national animal is the CuŠn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yellowism.
