The Imperial Autocracy of Ixilia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Galactic Autocrat Caros Ixilia with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.885 billion Ixilians 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Avalon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ixilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,408 trillion Ixil Ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 288,318 Ixil Ducats, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,607,375 per year while the poor average 25,819, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Ixilian Liberator". Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ixilia's national animal is the Double Headed Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Imperial Cult of Ixilia.

Ixilia is ranked 63,680th in the world and 27th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
