The Empire of XW5RULEZ is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Our Great Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 4.962 billion Captivis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldenrose. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Captivian economy, worth 597 trillion Rooks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,455 Rooks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, war vets look after war animals, former slaves are free to be oppressed, and spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of XW5RULEZ. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 213,309th in the world and 6,173rd in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -113.28 on the Hayek Index.
