The Perpendicular Bisector of Oxes Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Cory Bojourquez with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.264 billion Oxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rorgiaburg. The average income tax rate is 18.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Oxan economy, worth 127 trillion Ivories a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 101,089 Ivories, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, and burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oxes Republic's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Oxes Republic is ranked 134,837th in the world and 6,814th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -166.49 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
