The Theocracy of Greater Naxis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 307 million Greater Naxians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Helia. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Greater Naxian economy, worth 3.83 trillion Holy Standard Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 12,464 Holy Standard Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Naxis's national animal is the Giant Speckled Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Naxis is ranked 222,274th in the world and 119th in Thegye for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.76 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
