The Empiric Federation of Xixq is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by The Supreme Overlord with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.417 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xixq City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

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 the all-pervasive police force. Xixq's national animal is the grizzly bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Xixqian, and its currency is the Xaf.

Xixq is ranked 564th in Balder and 18,019th in the world for Largest Populations, with 5,417 Capita (millions).
