The Republic of Xencovia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President James Spencer with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.299 billion Xencovians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Xencovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,092 trillion Xencovian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 206,212 Xencovian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xencovia's national animal is the North American Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xencovia is ranked 138,819th in the world and 111th in Aukumnian Imperium for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 49.93 Workforce Participation Rate.
