Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empiric Federation of Xixq is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Supreme Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.594 billion Xixqs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xixq City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Xixqian economy, worth a remarkable 1,433 trillion Xafs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 256,319 Xafs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,485,187 per year while the poor average 1,275, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Children spout "Bow before the mighty government." involuntarily throughout the day, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and the number of children one can have is restricted by law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Xixq's national animal is the grizzly bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Xixqian.

Xixq is ranked 152,967th in the world and 4,707th in Lazarus for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 7.9 Tourists Per Hour.
