The Empire of Angelxwings is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Omya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.437 billion Angelxwingsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragonville. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Angelxwingsian economy, worth 131 trillion Magics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,617 Magics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise, the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angelxwings's national animal is the Zues, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Angelxwings is ranked 21,735th in the world and 759th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 8.22 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
