The Empire of XW5RULEZ is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Our Great Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The cynical, devout population of 6.202 billion Captivis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldenrose. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Captivian economy, worth 753 trillion Gregs 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 121,436 Gregs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Our Great Leader day after day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. XW5RULEZ's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is OurGreatLeaderism.

XW5RULEZ is ranked 10,065th in the world and 549th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,533.83 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
