The Queen's State of Phyxaville is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.969 billion Phyxavilleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although the Environment and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Phyxaville, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the government spends millions of betales every year prosecuting spammers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phyxaville's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.

Phyxaville is ranked 176th in Ancient Lands and 58,643rd in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 84 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
