The Irradiated Wasteland of Xenophobic Needles is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Enna Peacy with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.217 billion Desert Rangers 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Needles. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Combat Effective economy, worth a remarkable 1,666 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 268,112 Bottle Caps, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 789,004 per year while the poor average 71,733, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, there's more than one way to skin a diplomat, the Needles Women's Prison Choir now has a baritone section, and Combat Effective Gladiators is a ratings success. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Xenophobic Needles's national animal is the Radioactive Ghoul, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Rosebud.

Xenophobic Needles is ranked 244,134th in the world and 56th in The Fallout Wasteland for Lowest Crime Rates, with 6.13 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
