The Principality of Xernon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, devout population of 2.843 billion Xernonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DiVora. The average income tax rate is 58.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Xernonian economy, worth 98.0 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is 34,466 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, political candidates must be personally vetted by Leader, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Xernon is ranked 54,669th in the world and 172nd in Thaecia for Safest, scoring 98.55 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
