The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Retep Pern with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate population of 7.306 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 235th in 10000 Islands and 37,772nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.678 Stalins.
