The Rogue Nation of XK-Class is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dr Bright with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, disturbing lack of elderly people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.445 billion XK-Classians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Environment, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Site 19. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient XK-Classian economy, worth 834 trillion Yottabytes a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 341,329 Yottabytes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,661,417 per year while the poor average 11,207, a ratio of 237 to 1.

XK-Class isn't what it used to be, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. XK-Class's national animal is the SCP-173, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Brightism.

XK-Class is ranked 208,229th in the world and 8,873rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 1.99 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
