The Pirates of Xyanth is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by J Noble Daggett with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.059 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 Xyanthian economy, worth a remarkable 7,185 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 239,056 Dark Net Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,415,297 per year while the poor average 18,632, a ratio of 76.0 to 1.

The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the capital are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. 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 1,030th in the world and 5th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17,368.33 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
