LeaderLeader McLeaderFace


The Federation of Xipher is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Leader McLeaderFace with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 911 million Xipherians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xipherian economy, worth 110 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 121,245 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Leader McLeaderFace and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", Leader McLeaderFace is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xipher's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xipher is ranked 162,226th in the world and 7,463rd in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 177.48 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
