The Empire of Xalidius is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Xenos with an even hand, and remarkable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.778 billion Xalidians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xerxes. The average income tax rate is 3.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Xalidiusian economy, worth a remarkable 5,350 trillion Xaluses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 318,870 Xaluses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime is totally unknown. Xalidius's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Xenos' Cult of Personality.

Xalidius is ranked 131,050th in the world and 3,076th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.22 on the Rand Index.
