The Incorporated States of XY Inc is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Il Honourable Führer - CEO Klōn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.148 billion XYans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of XY City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient XYan economy, worth a remarkable 4,970 trillion Clone Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 351,335 Clone Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,491,623 per year while the poor average 16,508, a ratio of 150 to 1.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, small shoes often wash up on the beach, a petition to improve XYan literacy is mostly signed with cross-marks, and frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. XY Inc's national animal is the Cape bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ze XY Society.

XY Inc is ranked 2,654th in the world and 1st in Second Kekistani Republic for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 659.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
