The Empire of Itxinia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 722 million Itxinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 25.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Itxinian economy, worth 22.1 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,602 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The East Pacific, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Itxinia's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Itxinia is ranked 171,776th in the world and 6,516th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 50.34 on the Human Development Index.
