The Ocelot Senator Emeritus of Xoriet is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kath Zandion Beralis with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 25.482 billion Xoriens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Androssi. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Xorien economy, worth a remarkable 8,856 trillion Saruns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 347,562 Saruns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, and military equipment is being auctioned off to extend comatose centenarians' lives. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xoriet's national animal is the Golden Ocelot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fate's Mandate.

Xoriet is ranked 2,026th in the world and 78th in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 809.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
