The Glorious Prussian Empire of Phoenix2012 is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Frederick Wilhelm V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.171 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing industries.
Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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.
