The Principality of Xernon is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.364 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 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Xernonian economy, worth 115 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 Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 34,227 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, an eye for an eye leaves Xernon blind, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 83,599th in the world and 188th in Thaecia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 26,443.26 Standard Monetary Units.
