The Empire of Xestris is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Joe I with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.184 billion Xestrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castiel. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xestrisian economy, worth 277 trillion US Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,035 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, the Xestris Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xestris's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Xestris is ranked 115,964th in the world and 114th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 907.88 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
