Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sprawling Empire of Dr X is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Doctor X with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.73 billion Dr Xians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, 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 Essenor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dr Xian economy, worth a remarkable 2,315 trillion X Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 299,552 X Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,896,533 per year while the poor average 19,705, a ratio of 96.2 to 1.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Essenor to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Dr X's national animal is the Citizen, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Doctor X.

Dr X is ranked 95,810th in the world and 80th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Devout, with 12.9 Prayers Per Hour.
