The Theocracy of Xanh is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 308 million Xanhi are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Xanhi economy, worth 5.74 trillion Thieps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 18,640 Thieps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, and exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xanh's national animal is the Common Gull Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Xanh is ranked 58,992nd in the world and 102nd in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,743.85 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
