The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Xall with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.543 billion Oxirixians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, the military has had its funding stripped back as the nation seeks a smaller role in international politics, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 5,040th in the Rejected Realms and 100,054th in the world for Most Average, scoring 308 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
