The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Xall with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.833 billion Oxiris enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suntau. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Oxirix's radio stations, and the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Oxirix's national animal is the Sphynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Individualism, and its currency is the Eucastrian Drachma.

Oxirix is ranked 322nd in the Rejected Realms and 18,462nd in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 68 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
