The Oppressed Peoples of Phoenix-states is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 279 million Phoenix-statesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dynah. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Phoenix-statesian economy, worth 8.17 trillion Jabberwacks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 29,297 Jabberwacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

State officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Leader's portrait, Phoenix-states has designated Dynah as its capital city, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenix-states's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Phoenix-states is ranked 29,756th in the world and 640th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 32.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
