The Eternal Misfortune of Xynlandia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by some random guy with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.217 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, socially-minded, 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 2,572 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 and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 313,110 Xyniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, beat cops aren't named for the territory they patrol, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. 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 95,135th in the world and 4,211th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 881.37 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
