The Giving Trade Hub of Vylixan Dora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Santa Claus with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.671 billion Vylixan Dorans 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The gitft that keeps giving. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vylixan Doran economy, worth 310 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 185,553 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans, sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes, and toast never burns but always has a weird chemical taste. Crime is relatively low. Vylixan Dora's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Gifting.

Vylixan Dora is ranked 108,202nd in the world and 156th in Vylixan Prime for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,474.61 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
