The Holy Kingdom of Xaokova is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.516 billion Xaokovans 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, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Giszen. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Xaokovan economy, worth 105 trillion crowns 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 Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 69,309 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Xaokovan pirates, nude art is becoming wildly popular, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Xaokova in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xaokova's national animal is the egret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xaokova is ranked 111,023rd in the world and 96th in Forest for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,232.15 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
