The Allied States of Xalon is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.348 billion Xalonites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutrazindi. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Xalonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,754 trillion shares a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 169,527 shares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime is totally unknown. Xalon's national animal is the sponge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xalon is ranked 41,502nd in the world and 96th in Yggdrasil for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
