Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Pirates of Xyanth is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by J Noble Daggett with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.434 billion Xyanthians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xyanth City. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but inefficient Xyanthian economy, worth a remarkable 5,011 trillion Dark Net Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 182,669 Dark Net Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 543,138 per year while the poor average 48,166, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the Xyanth Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Xyanth's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xyanth is ranked 1st in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 709th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 19 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
