Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Retep Pern with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.277 billion Phradians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Phradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,269 trillion Drazzes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,552 Drazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. 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 43rd in 10000 Islands and 2,557th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 23 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
