The Fantastic DutchGarth Kingdom of Vylixan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sitethief with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.89 billion Vylixanians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Lynxa City. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vylixanian economy, worth 591 trillion Xanvylis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,378 Xanvylis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronomers are flocking to Vylixan to take advantage of its clear night skies, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Xanvyli battlesuits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 23,119th in the world and 863rd in the Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 76.64 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
