The PS2 Puppet of Xynlandia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by some random guy with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.664 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 6,048 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 442,646 Xyniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most people think algebra is something a mermaid wears, atheists on vacation find the best religion's scriptures make useful doorstops, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Xynlandians any less frightened, and police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters. 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 296th in the world and 11th in the South Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 81.42 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
