The Colonial Government of The Remnants of xeno23 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Overseer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.067 billion Test Subjects are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Test Subject economy, worth a remarkable 1,408 trillion Royal Silvers 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing 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 an amazing 346,401 Royal Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The Overseer's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting, and the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Remnants of xeno23's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Remnants of xeno23 is ranked 4,535th in the world and 4th in Institute of Cellulose for Most Developed, scoring 94.5 on the Human Development Index.
