The Happily Depressed Hackers of Linux and the X is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ferris with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.654 billion Luxians 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunri. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Luxian economy, worth a remarkable 7,930 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 321,663 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, and voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Linux and the X's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is isn't really known.

Linux and the X is ranked 7,561st in the world and 1st in The Transgender Region for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 88.57 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
