The Allied States of XKISP is a small, genial nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 23 million XKISP-Members 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 26.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair XKISPian economy, worth 816 billion Tacos a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,513 Tacos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is totally unknown. XKISP's national animal is the Space Cow, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

XKISP is ranked 46,506th in the world and 364th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 84.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
