The Holy Hugging Kingdom of Vylixan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sitethief with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.09 billion Vylixanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynxa City. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vylixanian economy, worth 380 trillion Xanvylis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,032 Xanvylis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, where there's smoke there's the Vylixanian Forestry Department, and the universal wage level is set by dividing GDP by the number of citizens. 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 monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Vylixan is ranked 1,993rd in the world and 45th in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,567.23 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
