Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Empire of Phoenix2012 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Lilly the Great with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.059 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,786 trillion blood diamonds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,619 blood diamonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and Phoenix2012's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 1,507th in the world and 84th in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
