The Democratic Republic of New Phyrreus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Aitchison with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.775 billion New Phyrreusians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newcastle. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the nation's gigantic air force is both respected and feared, voting is voluntary, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. New Phyrreus's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Sovereign.

New Phyrreus is ranked 128th in The North Pacific and 4,004th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
