The Free Republic of Oxirix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Xall with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.004 billion Oxiris have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suntau. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oxirixian economy, worth a remarkable 8,711 trillion Eucastrian Drachmas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 229,223 Eucastrian Drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

The homeless more often beg for mercy than money, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, a degree in Xall Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Oxirix's national animal is the Sphynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Individualism.

Oxirix is ranked 135th in the world and 7th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 42,394.3 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
