The Empire of Phalua is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The cynical population of 379 million Phaluans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Phaluan economy, worth 22.5 trillion phaluan dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,357 phaluan dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation leads The East Pacific in per capita stalking, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phalua's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phalua is ranked 121,704th in the world and 5,489th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 651.66 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
