The Republic of 1X3 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Frank Whip with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20.88 billion 1X3ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of X3ville. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong 1X3ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,041 trillion x3s a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,885 x3s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The dartboard at the 1X3ian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Frank Whip's face, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, people are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support Frank Whip, and choking on x3s is a leading cause of death for wild animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1X3's national animal is the roach, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is X Worship.

1X3 is ranked 10,484th in the world and 336th in Osiris for Most Primitive, scoring 79.92 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
