The Great Fleet of Xeng He is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Xeng He with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.348 billion Riders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient a Rider economy, worth a remarkable 2,917 trillion oath debts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 190,060 oath debts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 677,532 per year while the poor average 38,348, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Xeng He's national animal is the origen man, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Xagwan animism.

Xeng He is ranked 15,220th in the world and 757th in Osiris for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.65 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
