The Empire of Xarton is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Titus III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.252 billion Xartonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Xartonian economy, worth 928 trillion Throne Gelts a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 100,376 Throne Gelts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 577,897 per year while the poor average 8,356, a ratio of 69.2 to 1.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xarton's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Xarton is ranked 21,003rd in the world and 6th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Authoritarian, with 2,300.72 milliStalins.
