The Nomadic Peoples of Xyloqua is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Xarkenzia with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.888 billion Xyloquans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xark. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xyloquan economy, worth 412 trillion Malachites a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 142,831 Malachites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in Xyloqua that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, there's a bright dawn ahead for Xyloqua, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xyloqua's national animal is the Mantis Shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

Xyloqua is ranked 5,449th in the world and 138th in the Rejected Realms for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.32 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
