The Black Imperium of Xorlarrin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Maestro with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.45 billion Xorlarrians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R'lyeh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Xorlarrinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,223 trillion Septims a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 235,270 Septims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 849,258 per year while the poor average 46,559, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Xorlarrin's national animal is the Caragor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xorlarrin is ranked 6,657th in the world and 8th in The Axis of Evil for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 14,524.43 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
