The Banished SYNᱹ of Xemja is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Immortal MC Patron Mack Brahm Bärvolk with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.745 billion synths sapiens and zoanthropes are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kys B'Hang💋City of Beasts. The average income tax rate is 19.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Freebooter economy, worth 335 trillion ฿are฿acks 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, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 impressive 192,417 ฿are฿acks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love Immortal MC Patron Mack Brahm Bärvolk, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Xemja's national animal is the painted cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bacchic Mysteries.

Xemja is ranked 70,410th in the world and 1,061st in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 58.89 on the Human Development Index.
