The Incorporated States of Xasmeau is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Board of 500 with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.07 billion Drones are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperatrix. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Xasmeauan economy, worth 180 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 168,436 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 726,992 per year while the poor average 24,860, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Carefully-staged grief is displayed by The Board of 500 after national disasters, workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xasmeau's national animal is the Bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ronald Reagnism.

Xasmeau is ranked 130,491st in the world and 6th in Pangea Proxima for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 25.85 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
