The Fantastic DutchGarth Kingdom of Vylixan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Sitethief with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 9.7 billion Vylixanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Lynxa City. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vylixanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Xanvylis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 114,151 Xanvylis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the property market is in a bit of a state, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vylixan's national animal is the Naxilyv, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Vylixan is ranked 291,885th in the world and 4,125th in the Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.56 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
