The Democratic Republic of Xhaco is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President League with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.362 billion Xhacoans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xhacoan economy, worth 796 trillion Dollars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 182,552 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, refugees from other nations are flocking to Xhaco's border, and Xhaco's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime is totally unknown. Xhaco's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xhaco is ranked 4,770th in the world and 102nd in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 15,342.93 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
