The Republic of Eastern Phoenix Islands is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 1.558 billion Eastern Phoenix Islandsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Eastern Phoenix Islandsian economy, worth 62.3 trillion flamethrowers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,998 flamethrowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Phoenix Islands's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eastern Phoenix Islands is ranked 94,008th in the world and 3,404th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
