The Pastafarian Empire of Theta Xi Nation is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by His Imperial Noodliness ME with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.369 billion Theta Xi Nationians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theta Xi Beta Nu Bunker. The average income tax rate is 47.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Theta Xi Nationian economy, worth 102 trillion Drachmas a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,994 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, everyone apparently sends His Imperial Noodliness ME hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, and contestants on Theta Xi Nation's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theta Xi Nation's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Theta Xi Nation is ranked 120,401st in the world and 4,660th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 22.26 on the Hayek Index.
