The Democratic Socialist Union of Xystopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by To Be Determined with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.637 billion Xystopians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of To Be Determined. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Xystopian economy, worth 370 trillion Communist Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology and 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. Average income is an impressive 140,501 Communist Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Xystopia, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xystopia's national animal is the Communism Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xystopia is ranked 38,359th in the world and 1,797th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 199,425.02 Standard Monetary Units.
