The Colony of Illixium is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 768 million Illixians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The powerhouse Illixian economy, worth 75.5 trillion Wizcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 98,276 Wizcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 512,050 per year while the poor average 10,169, a ratio of 50.3 to 1.

Illixium's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, and drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Illixium's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Illixium is ranked 22,225th in the world and 5th in Wizlandian Commonwealth for Most Avoided, scoring 208.18 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
