Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Xall with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.529 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, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 7,169 trillion Eucastrian Drachmas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 234,849 Eucastrian Drachmas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 853,880 per year while the poor average 45,957, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

The poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. 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 84,232nd in the world and 1,560th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,576.55 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
