The Borderlands of Xunar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Marc Millan with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 15.369 billion Xunarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glasgow. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Xunarian economy, worth 220 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 14,314 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Xunar's radio stations, surveillance cameras are banned, Marc Millan has just been declared ruler of Xunar in an international press conference, and Xunarism has been named as Xunar's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xunar's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Xunarism.

Xunar is ranked 162,262nd in the world and 31st in Xedas for Most Secular, with 15.73 Atheism Rate.
