The Eternal Misfortune of Xynlandia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by some random guy with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, pith helmet sales, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.848 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 2,419 trillion Xyniums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Furniture Restoration industry. Average income is an amazing 308,343 Xyniums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. 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 161,373rd in the world and 6,980th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 0.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
