The Auspicious Republic of Xiaodong is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Yuan Xiannian and Xi Yao-tong with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, aversion to nipples, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.688 billion Xiaos 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rongzhuo. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xiaodongese economy, worth a remarkable 1,576 trillion Renjins a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,517 Renjins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, wheelchair-enabled paratroopers need access ramps to get onto planes but not off them, and to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xiaodong's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Taojiao.

Xiaodong is ranked 22,305th in the world and 10th in Kylaris for Best Weather, with 148 Meters Of Sunlight.
