The Pixie Empress of Axle is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Me with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.092 billion Axleinas enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Home. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The all-consuming Axlite economy, worth 793 trillion Cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 98,097 Cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, the nation's favourite colour is gold (Axle has found 1 easter egg), and selfie stick use is a required Scout badge. Crime is totally unknown. Axle's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Helicism.

Axle is ranked 19,627th in the world and 29th in Confederacy of Allied States for Best Weather, with 156 Meters Of Sunlight.
