The Rising Sun of The Fyre Phoenix is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Someone with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.22 billion Fyre Phoenixians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Phoenix. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Fyre Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 4,060 trillion Fyres a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 397,356 Fyres, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,489,058 per year while the poor average 26,885, a ratio of 92.6 to 1.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Fyre Phoenix's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

The Fyre Phoenix is ranked 7,263rd in the world and 23rd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Governments, scoring 36.73 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
