Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Xall with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.055 billion Oxiris are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suntau. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oxirixian economy, worth a remarkable 6,841 trillion Eucastrian Drachmas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 220,304 Eucastrian Drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 957,037 per year while the poor average 32,150, a ratio of 29.8 to 1.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Oxirix's national animal is the Sphynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Individualism.

Oxirix is ranked 920th in the world and 25th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Crime Rates, with 55.86 Crimes Per Hour.
