The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Xall with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 37.737 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, prioritizes Defense, although 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 8,532 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 226,111 Eucastrian Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 668,344 per year while the poor average 60,121, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

People are bored of easy crossword puzzles, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies, and gossip magazines have pictures of Xall sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. 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 123,842nd in the world and 3,538th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 729.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
