The PS2 Puppet of Xynlandia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by some random guy with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, lack of airports, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.94 billion Xynlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of XXXX. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Xynlandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,504 trillion Xyniums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 377,300 Xyniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Xynlandia's national animal is the Xylophone, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the best religion.

Xynlandia is ranked 204,421st in the world and 7,697th in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 7.19 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
