Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population283 million



The Federation of Xipher is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 283 million 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Xipherian economy, worth 24.0 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, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 84,881 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xipher is ranked 189,272nd in the world and 8,356th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
