The Morthanveld Polity of Xah is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Caste Council with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.274 billion Xahians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caltarn. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Xahian economy, worth 745 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 174,528 Huons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, and the children of Xah are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. 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 35,874th in the world and 12th in Axiom Supercluster for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 71.29 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
