The Eternal Republic of Xirnium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the High Court of Parliament with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.244 billion Xirniumites are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Närväryn the Beautiful. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Xirniumite economy, worth an astonishing 10,972 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 362,786 florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,733,602 per year while the poor average 44,521, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

Students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", foreign leaders who don't applaud the High Court of Parliament's speeches are regarded as enemies of Xirnium, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Xirnium's national animal is the common barn owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a chthonic goddess religion.

Xirnium is ranked 19,471st in the world and 8th in The Forgotten Lands for Most Developed, scoring 75.82 on the Human Development Index.
