The Federation of Xipher is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 525 million Xipherians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Xipherian economy, worth 53.0 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,027 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts, sex changes are routinely performed at Xipher's hospitals, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xipher is ranked 190,899th in the world and 8,549th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -28.93 on the Hayek Index.
