Location: Thaecia

The Principality of Xernon is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.591 billion Xernonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DiVora. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Xernonian economy, worth 49.9 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Average income is 31,336 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, Leader has just been declared ruler of Xernon in an international press conference, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xernon's national animal is the Mockingbird, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Xernon is ranked 61,484th in the world and 143rd in Thaecia for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
