The Technological Singularity of 20XX is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fox McCloud with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.023 billion 20XXians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milky Way. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped 20XXian economy, worth 51.9 trillion Shinespikes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 50,685 Shinespikes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 20XX's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

20XX is ranked 70,324th in the world and 1st in Scriptforge for Best Weather, with 106 Meters Of Sunlight.
