Theocracy of Xochimechatl

Most electricity in Xochimechatl is generated either through burning coal or through hydroelectric stations (about half for each). All electricity-producing facilities on the island were constructed by the Lendians, and 70% of them are still owned by EnergiaLendia, a major Lendosan corporation. The remainder have passed into the ownership of local authorities. The central government does not own any power plants.

The electricity distribution network of Xochimechatl is generally fairly poor. A number of major projects were undertaken by the Lendians to improve it, resulting in excellent service to most main centres (Ravenniara, Teocapec, Iztepl, and Tlaloc), but the service to more remote parts of the country is often weak. It is not uncommon for power to be lost in certain areas, and it generally takes some time for it to be restored.

Access to electricity is variable. Many rural areas do not have electricity supplies at all, while a substantial number of people in the cities cannot afford it. There is a growing problem of city-dwellers establishing illegal connections to the power grid, which is to be discouraged not merely because it is theft but because such connections are often highly dangerous, and can cause deaths.

Xochimechatl has no oil production of its own, although there is a very small amount of oil to be found within its territorial waters. As such, it imports all the oil it uses (oil consumption for Xochimechatl is estimated to be about 60,000 barrels a day, a low figure compared to many nations - the relative lack of development in Xochimechatl is the largest contributor to this low figure).

The largest oil company in Xochimechatl is Agora, a Lendosan company that established a monopoly here during the Lendian occupation.


The Theocracy of Xochimechatl is a fictional state on the world of Vexillium.
