Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Jingoistic States of Xhuxhania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nemo with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.797 billion Xhuxhanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xhaxhukastan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Xhuxhanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,460 trillion Conch Shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 214,939 Conch Shells, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 795,909 per year while the poor average 40,872, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Xhuxhanian Space Agency, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Xhuxhania's national animal is the Sand Flea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Xhuxhania is ranked 2,598th in the world and 9th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Devout, with 4,677.26 Prayers Per Hour.
