Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pirates of Xyanth is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by J Noble Daggett with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.595 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 aren't funded at all. 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 8,203 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 268,141 Dark Net Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,645,746 per year while the poor average 19,121, a ratio of 86.1 to 1.

The nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars. 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 150,561st in the world and 42nd in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.01 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
