LeaderChief Executive Panel


The Commonwealth of Xatin is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Executive Panel with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 854 million Xatinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toqapkal. The average income tax rate is 19.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Xatinian economy, worth 115 trillion Lejus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 135,785 Lejus, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Xatin's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Xatin is ranked 7,426th in the world and 228th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,831.2 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
