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 remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.674 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, 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 4,804 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 180,100 Dark Net Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,181,248 per year while the poor average 10,752, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. 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 31st in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 125,735th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -2,094 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
