The Imperium of Xaishetor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Synx with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.15 billion Xaishetorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oculus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Xaishetorian economy, worth 361 trillion Eyes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,224 Eyes, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Xaishetorians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, the Great Pyramid of Oculus can be seen from miles away, and colonial subjects have Xaishetorian culture shoved down their throats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Xaishetor's national animal is the Beholder, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Xaishetor is ranked 149,083rd in the world and 1st in Xaishetor for Most Primitive, scoring -304.74 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
