The Holy Empire of Axhory is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 267 million Axhoryans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Axhoryian economy, worth 10.0 trillion eggs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 37,499 eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Axhory's national animal is the axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Axhory is ranked 109,593rd in the world and 3,774th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,061.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
