The PS2 Puppet of Xynlandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by some random guy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.21 billion Xynlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of XXXX. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Xynlandian economy, worth a remarkable 5,631 trillion Xyniums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 426,319 Xyniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, and black tea is only available on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Xynlandia's national animal is the Xylophone, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the best religion.

Xynlandia is ranked 4,852nd in the world and 101st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,564.56 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
