The Empire of the Iberians of Xotrayjan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Radigis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.374 billion Iberians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrid. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iberian economy, worth a remarkable 1,878 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 130,677 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, Radigis's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, and the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xotrayjan's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Xotrayjan is ranked 10,980th in the world and 9th in New World Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,337.34 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
