The Democratic Republic of New Phyrreus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Aitchison with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.151 billion 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 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and people eagerly queue days at A&E to wait for their free healthcare. 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 4,919th in The North Pacific and 116,678th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -18 Whatever.
