The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Retep Pern with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 10.839 billion Phradians 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.

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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,349 trillion Drazzes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 124,549 Drazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nation-building is the new national pastime, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, tax assessment offices double as polling stations, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. 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 77th in 10000 Islands and 5,749th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 17 Whatever.
