The Pirates of Xyanth is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by J Noble Daggett with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.975 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 5,146 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 190,780 Dark Net Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 559,791 per year while the poor average 51,254, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, birth rates have hit an all-time low, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, and abortions are routinely performed in Xyanth's hospitals. 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 40th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 140,930th in the world for Most Average, scoring -822 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
