Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Eternal Lurk of Xlanar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Connor Phillips with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.852 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 aren't funded at all. 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 1,895 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 11,091st in the world and 35th in The Black Hawks for Most Extreme, scoring 33.95 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
