The Eternal Lurk of Xlanar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Connor Phillips with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.947 billion Xlanarians 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, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byblos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Xlanarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,011 trillion Phoenics a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 106,187 Phoenics, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 780,651 per year while the poor average 4,402, a ratio of 177 to 1.

Grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, and teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xlanar's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Murder Kube.

Xlanar is ranked 4,713th in the world and 8th in The Black Hawks for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 177.32 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
