The Pirates of Xyanth is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by J Noble Daggett with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.648 billion Xyanthians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xyanth City. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Xyanthian economy, worth a remarkable 8,829 trillion Dark Net Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 279,001 Dark Net Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,538,340 per year while the poor average 25,602, a ratio of 60.1 to 1.

Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and there's never enough space in space. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Xyanth's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xyanth is ranked 145,304th in the world and 20th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Most Authoritarian, with 0.02 Stalins.
