The Holy Red Democracy of Vylixan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sitethief with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.226 billion Vylixanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynxa City. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vylixanian economy, worth 301 trillion Xanvylis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,394 Xanvylis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vylixan's national animal is the Naxilyv monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Vylixan is ranked 162,850th in the world and 4,465th in the Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
