The Federation of Xipher is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leader McLeaderFace with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.78 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 270 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 152,223 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. 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 238,139th in the world and 9,019th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 29.88 Whatever.
