The Operatives of XCOM Project is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Central Officer Bradford with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.268 billion XCOM Operatives are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Avenger. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient XCOM Operative economy, worth a remarkable 1,808 trillion Council Fundings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,321 Council Fundings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, and Central Officer Bradford's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. XCOM Project's national animal is the Skyranger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

XCOM Project is ranked 111,360th in the world and 72nd in Shinka for Most Extreme, scoring 17.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
