Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Xerographica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.05 billion Xerographicans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The powerhouse Xerographican economy, worth 455 trillion aeranthos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 45,327 aeranthos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 195,640 per year while the poor average 6,690, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, abortions are routinely performed in Xerographica's hospitals, half of Xerographica's doctors can't speak the language, and rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Xerographica's national animal is the chameleon.

Xerographica is ranked 135,305th in the world and 4,176th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 158.13 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
