Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Empire of Socialist Xlyvania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Jixam with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 16.917 billion Xlyvanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chaltier. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Xlyvanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,081 trillion Wares a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 300,405 Wares, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Xlyvania's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Socialist Xlyvania is ranked 15,072nd in the world and 18th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Income Equality, scoring 76.27 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
