The United Socialist States of Xeralaversian is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 449 million Xeralaverists have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Xeralaversianian economy, worth 14.6 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,599 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, parking's carefree without parking car fees, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xeralaversian's national animal is the pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
