The Nomadic Peoples of Xyloqua is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Xarkenzia with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.285 billion Xyloquans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xark. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Xyloquan economy, worth 750 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,937 Malachites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Xarkenzia's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, recognizing the Xyloquan flag qualifies you for citizenship, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime 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 23,206th in the world and 603rd in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 218 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
