The Democratic States of Xyrgistan is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 210 million Xyrgistanii hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Xyrgistani economy, worth 11.1 trillion Xyrgs a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,939 Xyrgs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", children are raised bilingual from an early age, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown. Xyrgistan's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
