The Morthanveld Polity of Xah is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the Great Unknown with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 6.463 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 Sky Nest. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Xahian economy, worth a remarkable 1,141 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.

Sky Nest spends billions upgrading public transport, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, refugees from other nations are flocking to Xah's border, and citizens are deeply regretting challenging the government to be honest about its intentions. 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 154,889th in the world and 30th in Cynosure for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 45.99 Workforce Participation Rate.
