The Pink Holy Christmas Ghost of Xernon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 5.922 billion Xernonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xernonian economy, worth 733 trillion Golds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,941 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new "quiet competence" initiative has supporters and detractors alike reeling in confusion, there's no representation without taxation, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and some of the country's most famous photographers are animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xernon's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Athyism.

Xernon is ranked 38,409th in the world and 118th in Thaecia for Most Cultured, scoring 72 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
