The Federation of Xipher is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader McLeaderFace with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.768 billion Xipherians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xipherian economy, worth 268 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 151,722 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, and the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xipher's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xipher is ranked 157,604th in the world and 6,621st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.42 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
