The Holy Empire of Xovva is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Azhev Nileeva with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.09 billion Xovvans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xovvaran. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.1%.

The all-consuming Xovvan economy, worth 365 trillion Xovvan Banknotes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. 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 174,731 Xovvan Banknotes, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, a new apartment is worth a thousand betrayals, Azhev Nileeva often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xovva's national animal is the Xovvan Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Six Tenets.

Xovva is ranked 244,337th in the world and 5,755th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 34.88 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
