The Morthanveld Polity of Xah is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the Caste Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.824 billion Xahians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltarn. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Xahian economy, worth 852 trillion Huons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 176,627 Huons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government-sponsored autobiography 'A the Caste Council For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of the Caste Council's supporters, Caltarn spends billions upgrading public transport, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Xah's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xah's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Xah is ranked 172,508th in the world and 73rd in Axiom Supercluster for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10.39 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
