FaithXenos' Cult of Personality


The Empire of Xalidius is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Xenos with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.174 billion Xalidians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xerxes. The average income tax rate is 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Xalidiusian economy, worth a remarkable 5,920 trillion Xaluses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 325,754 Xaluses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, superfoods are often seen as supervillains, it's always rabbit season, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime is totally unknown. Xalidius's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Xenos' Cult of Personality.

Xalidius is ranked 14,965th in the world and 493rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,671.97 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
