The Grand Duchy of Sixist is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 2.741 billion Sixistians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.6%.

The Sixistian economy, worth 158 trillion rubles 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. 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 57,870 rubles, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Newspapers may not print any negative stories about the government, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sixist's national animal is the crocodile, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Sixist is ranked 28,392nd in the world and 17th in Crystal Falls for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.84 Bank.
