The Anomaly of Xanunin is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Xander with a fair hand, and remarkable for its spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.457 billion Xanuninians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xanunia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.8%.

The thriving Xanuninian economy, worth 839 trillion Xans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 41,023 Xans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 178,501 per year while the poor average 5,969, a ratio of 29.9 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, Xanunin has designated Xanunia as its capital city, and Xander has just been declared ruler of Xanunin in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Xanunin's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nihilism.

Xanunin is ranked 152,700th in the world and 1st in Anakin Skywalker is hot for Smartest Citizens, with 26.37 quips per hour.
