The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Xall with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 32.136 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 7,085 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 220,474 Eucastrian Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 758,993 per year while the poor average 46,922, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

Grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, Xall's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and for just a few extra Eucastrian Drachmas Oxiris can get new driving records with their new cars. 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 4,015th in the world and 74th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 401.78 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
