Xatu the Great

Population4.588 billion


The Theocracy of Xatu the Great is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.588 billion Xatu the Greatians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Environment, and Administration are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Xatu the Greatian economy, worth 112 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 24,599 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The elderly don't know who the dickens adorns the face of newly-issued banknotes, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xatu the Great's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xatu the Great is ranked 258,343rd in the world and 114th in Gay for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -83.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
