The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.033 billion Phoronuans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Phoronus. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth 871 trillion Phoronuan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,164 Phoronuan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Phoronuans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoronu's national animal is the Quick Toed Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Non-Movementarianism.

Phoronu is ranked 3,213th in the world and 146th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 62.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
