The Republic of Phoenixesia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 599 million Phoenixesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Phoenixesian economy, worth 51.5 trillion Phoenixes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,016 Phoenixes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and occupational wage levels are based on a crumpled napkin authored by a legendary Phoenixesia City bus driver. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenixesia's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phoenixesia is ranked 12,244th in the world and 360th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,288.55 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
