The Theocracy of Magnolixie is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 311 million Magnolixieans 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Antioch. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The strong Magnolixiean economy, worth 20.0 trillion denarions a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 64,442 denarions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Magnolixie is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, and pregnant women make easy targets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Magnolixie's national animal is the lamb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Magnolixie is ranked 42,963rd in the world and 75th in Anteria for Largest Governments, scoring 19.05 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
