LeaderTantzong the Great


The Empire of Xicqy is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tantzong the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.843 billion Xicqyians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tuicara. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Xicqyian economy, worth 350 trillion Quans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 190,078 Quans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tabloids coo over Tantzong the Great's expected child, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, interest in globalism never flags, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Xicqy's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Xicqy is ranked 20,850th in the world and 336th in the West Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 58.68 kickbacks per hour.
