The Glorious Prussian Empire of Phoenix2012 is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Frederick Wilhelm V with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.346 billion Phoenixians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Phoenix2012. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Phoenix2012's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Militantism, and its currency is the blood diamond.

Phoenix2012 is ranked 1st in Legitimate Region and 4,155th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 443 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
