The Democratic Republic of The Capitalist States of Philashan is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 206 million Philashanians 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 relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The powerhouse Philashanian economy, worth 16.9 trillion Shenpas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 81,948 Shenpas, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and it's often raining men (hallelujah) in The Capitalist States of Philashan City. Crime is relatively low. The Capitalist States of Philashan's national animal is the Mako Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The Capitalist States of Philashan is ranked 126,860th in the world and 1,288th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 15.12 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
