The Authoritarian Democracy of Northeast Xeritae is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Totally Not Zeritan with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory vegetarianism, and pith helmet sales. The quiet, industrious population of 1.527 billion Northeast Xeritaeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keaner. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Northeast Xeritaean economy, worth 50.5 trillion Derndys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 33,099 Derndys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has been criticized for giving away Northeast Xeritae's territory to anyone who claims it, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets, and chess defeat has made Totally Not Zeritan the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northeast Xeritae's national animal is the CuŠn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yellowism.

Northeast Xeritae is ranked 146,053rd in the world and 842nd in Europe for Most Politically Free, scoring 40.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
