The Grand Federation of Xentherida is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leona Antonsson with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.546 billion Xentheridans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackwater City. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xentheridan economy, worth a remarkable 2,788 trillion Krans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,274 Krans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. Crime is totally unknown. Xentherida's national animal is the Celetepow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xentherida is ranked 213,431st in the world and 9,657th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -248.77 on the Hayek Index.
