The Psycho Sergeant of Xlanar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Connor Phillips with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 12.212 billion Xlanarians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byblos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.

Terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xlanar's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Great and Glorious Afro, and its currency is the Phoenic.

Xlanar is ranked 33rd in The Black Hawks and 30,144th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
