The Intercosmic Theocracracy of Xemt is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.922 billion Xemta are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Xemtic economy, worth 162 trillion religious rocks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 33,002 religious rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, asking about politics will earn a man a head pat and warnings that government is the woman's sphere, and kids are exceptionally good at digging holes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xemt's national animal is the five-feathered seelee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Samatal.

Xemt is ranked 165,282nd in the world and 176th in The Ragerian Imperium for Most Secular, with 5.95 Atheism Rate.
