The Republic of Phydios is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Ross with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.215 billion Phydiosians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sula. The average income tax rate is 79.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Phydiosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,004 trillion quinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,116 quinoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, bins outnumber trees in city parks, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phydios's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phydios is ranked 10,707th in the world and 8th in Right to Life for Highest Average Incomes, with 164,116.21 Standard Monetary Units.
