The Democratic Republic of New Phyrreus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Cactus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.856 billion New Phyrreans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newcastle. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Phyrrean economy, worth 977 trillion Sovereigns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,446 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Surveillance cameras are banned, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Phyrreus's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
