|Leader||Grand Empress Marilyn Jeane Targaryen|
The Grand Empire of Xolox is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Empress Marilyn Jeane Targaryen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.784 billion Loxans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xarax. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Loxan economy, worth a remarkable 2,533 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 288,428 Imperial Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,196,022 per year while the poor average 45,600, a ratio of 26.2 to 1.
In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xolox's national animal is the Loxan Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
