The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Xall with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.732 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, almost all of Oxirix's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 14th in the Rejected Realms and 769th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 382.1 Insults Per Minute (net).
