The Barbaric Empire of Xeraph is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Amalric Tan'it with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.134 billion Xeraphians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, although Industry and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravennii. The average income tax rate is 16.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xeraphian economy, worth a remarkable 1,736 trillion topaz rings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 49,436 topaz rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gangs have taken to secret handshakes after tattoos were banned, homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, and Xeraph has designated Ravennii as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Xeraph's national animal is the Black Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Essene Zen-Tao.

Xeraph is ranked 11,790th in the world and 4th in Mercenary Lands for Largest Black Market, with 32.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
