Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Retep Pern with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.336 billion Phradians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pac. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Phradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion Drazzes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 120,492 Drazzes, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is avowedly secular, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. 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.

Phrados is ranked 46th in 10000 Islands and 2,082nd in the world for Nicest Citizens, with 106 Smiles Per Hour (net).
