The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Retep Pern with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.928 billion Phradians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pac. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and citizens must pay to enjoy Phrados's pristine beaches. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phrados's national animal is the Bong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Draz.

Phrados is ranked 32nd in 10000 Islands and 1,075th in the world for Best Weather, with 409 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
