The Republic of Loxodon is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 177 million Loxodonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Loxodonian economy, worth 8.26 trillion Loxodon Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 46,683 Loxodon Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Loxodon's national animal is the Seal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Loxodon is ranked 196,095th in the world and 157th in The Western Isles for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.64 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
