The Glorious Prussian Empire of Phoenix2012 is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Frederick Wilhelm V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.283 billion Phoenixians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,093 trillion blood diamonds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 207,009 blood diamonds, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.
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 a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenix2012's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Militantism.
