The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Xall with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.227 billion Oxiris are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. 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.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, military spending is on the increase, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 13th in the Rejected Realms and 522nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 469 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
