The Kingdom of Onixus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Savok The Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.684 billion Onixians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oa. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Onixusian economy, worth 688 trillion Haloes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,904 Haloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, folk are absolutely certain that you can never be absolutely certain, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Onixus's national animal is the Kodiak Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Onixus is ranked 122,182nd in the world and 205th in Wintreath for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.05 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
