The Fever Dream of Xesperias is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Baldovin Isbrand Hildimar Imhoff with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.791 billion Xesperians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mirage. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Xesperasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 trillion Zetoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 134,434 Zetoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,238,779 per year while the poor average 1,471, a ratio of 841 to 1.

An increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and everybody's got wood thanks to Baldovin Isbrand Hildimar Imhoff. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Xesperias's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Xesperias is ranked 3,774th in the world and 1st in Lower Kingdom for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 20,965.13 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
