The Nomadic Peoples of Xyloqua is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Xarkenzia with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 3.063 billion Xyloquans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xark. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xyloquan economy, worth 437 trillion Malachites 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 142,963 Malachites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, Mantis Shrimp is one of the most popular forenames in Xyloqua, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xyloqua's national animal is the Mantis Shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

Xyloqua is ranked 36,302nd in the world and 2,766th in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 323.53539710388 Days.
