The Free Land of Xvlaticolia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.318 billion Xvlaticolians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LibertÓ. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Xvlaticolian economy, worth 512 trillion Francas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 96,445 Francas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love LibertÓ" t-shirts, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Xvlaticolia's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Xvlaticolia is ranked 242,335th in the world and 149th in Enadia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 17.4 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
