The Foínix Aftokratoría of Megistos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Fainex with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.175 billion Mᴇgistians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Paix. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mᴇgistia economy, worth 478 trillion Frᴇies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 219,994 Frᴇies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, what happens in court stays in court, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is totally unknown. Megistos's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Phoenixi Orthodox.

Megistos is ranked 182,923rd in the world and 660th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.86 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
