Northeast Xeritae

Population2.54 billion



The Anomalous Republic of Northeast Xeritae is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 2.54 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 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Northeast Xeritaean economy, worth 85.2 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 33,524 Derndys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chess defeat has made Leader the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft. 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 216,626th in the world and 11th in Nebraska Territory for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
