Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Empire of Phoenix2012 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Lilly the Great with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.409 billion Phoenixians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,887 trillion blood diamonds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 224,482 blood diamonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, every week is blindness awareness week, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Phoenixia's playgrounds, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenix2012's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lillytasticism.

Phoenix2012 is ranked 9,065th in the world and 291st in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 265.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
