The Principality of Xernon is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.723 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 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Xernonian economy, worth 164 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 Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 34,930 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An eye for an eye leaves Xernon blind, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, and the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash. 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 59,723rd in the world and 48th in Thaecia for Largest Populations, with 4.72 billion Capita.
