The Imperial Empire of Socialist Xlyvania is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Emperor Jami with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.864 billion Xlyvanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaltier. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Xlyvania's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Ware.

Socialist Xlyvania is ranked 1st in The Land of Kings and Emperors and 428th in the world for Best Weather, with 665 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
