The Matriarchy of Xattia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 661 million Xattians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Xattian economy, worth 13.7 trillion pazzes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 20,669 pazzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, and it's all quiet on the western front. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xattia's national animal is the honey bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
