The Nomadic Peoples of Microsoft Windows XP Pro is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 213 million Microsoft Windows XP Proans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

Average income is 67,437 cashes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 328,969 per year while the poor average 7,956, a ratio of 41.3 to 1.

The 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit.

Microsoft Windows XP Pro's national animal is the trojan, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Microsoft Windows XP Pro is ranked 60,970th in the world and 2,228th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,104.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
