Political and administrative facts Edit
The main person in country is a king or a queen. There is a rule that after king obligatory comes a queen, and after queen obligatory comes a king. In whole history there has not been exeptions of that rule. A queen can be king's wife, daughter, granddoughter... Same: a king can be queens husband, son, grandson... King (queen) is not just formal person. They are leading country and have similar function as presidents in republics. Under king (queen) there is a prime minister with government. Parliament is making the law. So, similar to usual democratic country. 20th May 2007 is historical because country was divided on 8 cantons: Xenea, Arena, Sur, Bilops, Maremagnum, Hlo, Crox and Sambuca.

Terezon is the most multiethnic city in Xorientia - there are 67% Xorientians, 11% Salons, 10% Lost Islanders, 7% Yaponesians, 3% Spilans etc.).
Official languages are Xorientian and Esperanto. While Esperanto is used only in official things such as courts, parliament, documents etc, Xorientian is "every-day" language. Anyway, high 95% Xorientians speak Esperanto, too. Xorientian language has its roots in Croatian. It used to be called Neocroatian, but last month Parliament has finally voted that the language is named Xorientian. It is similar to Croatian, but it is more modern - it combinates english and croatian alphabet and it is easier to learn then standard Croatian.
