The Commonwealth of Xanatosi is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President of the Junta Samad Manekshaw with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.39 billion Xanatosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Recean Cap. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xanatosian economy, worth 235 trillion Xanotents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 169,369 Xanotents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and sly spies try to rely on national allies so that they don't die. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xanatosi's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Recean Nationalism.

Xanatosi is ranked 13,351st in the world and 761st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 88.24 on the Human Development Index.
