The Borderlands of Xyrron is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 355 million Xyrronians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iruka. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Xyrronian economy, worth 23.4 trillion Quals 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 65,929 Quals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", the nation is The North Pacific's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xyrron's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Xyrron is ranked 122,003rd in the world and 6,068th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 78,668.01 Standard Monetary Units.
