The People's Republic of Zixu is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 277 million Wuyouzis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taixu. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Wuyouzian economy, worth 19.3 trillion Kuais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 69,793 Kuais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zixu's national animal is the Yellow Perch, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zixu is ranked 125,226th in the world and 6,865th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.15 Obesity Rate.
