The PS2 Puppet of Xynlandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by some random guy with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12 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 4,560 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 380,033 Xyniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, Harry Potter books are banned, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety. 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 207,960th in the world and 7,667th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.11 Crimes Per Hour.
