The People's Republic of Xothelia is a small, socially progressive nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 29 million Xothelics are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The very strong Xothelic economy, worth 1.54 trillion Xotals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 53,134 Xotals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 171,104 per year while the poor average 12,490, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Xothelia's national animal is the eagle.

Xothelia is ranked 172,481st in the world and 177th in Refugia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 129.16 Tourists Per Hour.
