The Empire of Xestris is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Joe I with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.72 billion Xestrians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castiel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Xestrisian economy, worth 468 trillion US Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 125,927 US Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xestris's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Xestris is ranked 31,873rd in the world and 67th in Capitalist Paradise for Lowest Crime Rates, with 74.43 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
