The Anomalous Republic of Northeast Xeritae is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The quiet, industrious population of 3.028 billion Northeast Xeritaeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Northeast Xeritaean economy, worth 101 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 33,442 Derndys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Northeast Xeritae is ranked 130,487th in the world and 170th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 1,767.52 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
