The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Retep Pern with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.432 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 97%. 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.
Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, loans are available for students from poor families, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, and voting is voluntary. 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.
