The Piper at the Gates of Dawn of Xadrya is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.234 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 20.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Xadryan economy, worth 830 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 133,241 Aukus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. 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 60,361st in the world and 49th in Ascenthia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,662.52 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
