The Oppressed Peoples of Philville2 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Biggus Philus with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.688 billion Philvillians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Philville2ian economy, worth 152 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 90,410 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philville2's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Philville2 is ranked 41,511th in the world and 1,321st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,420.76 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
