The Commonwealth of Huxely is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The quiet, industrious population of 682 million Huxelyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Huxelyian economy, worth 7.18 trillion Beads 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Uranium Mining. Average income is 10,522 Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, and cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Huxely's national animal is the Huxelyian Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Huxely is ranked 50,391st in the world and 1,927th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
