The Republic of Xingal is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Müller with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.288 billion Xingalese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xing. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xingalese economy, worth a remarkable 1,533 trillion Azuls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 115,430 Azuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is giving peace a chance, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xingal's national animal is the Winged Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xingal is ranked 146,185th in the world and 170th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.44 on the Rand Index.
