The Pirates of Xyanth is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by J Noble Daggett with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.08 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 strong Xyanthian economy, worth a remarkable 6,422 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 246,267 Dark Net Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,408,146 per year while the poor average 20,828, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, procrastination is a national sport, bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. 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 26th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region and 91,406th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 39 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
