The Kingdom of Xiomar is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 378 million Xiomarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenochtitlán. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Xiomarian economy, worth 17.8 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 47,036 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xiomar's national animal is the snow leopard, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Xiomar is ranked 168,185th in the world and 6,985th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.18 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
