The Nomadic Peoples of Xyloqua is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Xarkenzia with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 4.832 billion Xyloquans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xark. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Xyloquan economy, worth 692 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. Average income is an impressive 143,375 Malachites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In court almost every witness is a hostile witness, the justice of Xyloqua is considered superior to that of other nations, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation. Crime 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 174,581st in the world and 4,156th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.06 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
