The Piper at the Gates of Dawn of Xadrya is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.789 billion Xadryans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aukum City. The average income tax rate is 17.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Xadryan economy, worth 761 trillion Aukus 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 an impressive 131,599 Aukus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xadrya's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Xadryanism.

Xadrya is ranked 10,167th in the world and 5th in Ascenthia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 97,335.7 Standard Monetary Units.
