The Constitutional Monarchy of Phino is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 178 million Phins are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.0%.

The all-consuming Phin economy, worth 17.6 trillion phin dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. 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 99,081 phin dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 429,032 per year while the poor average 14,541, a ratio of 29.5 to 1.

The word 'foreigner' is considered a highly vulgar expletive, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, and only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phino's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Phino is ranked 109,005th in the world and 162nd in Karma for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,770.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
