The Greater Philippine State of Emperio Maharlika is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Punong Fernando Gabriel Flores with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 8.289 billion Filipinos 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bagong Maynila. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Filipino economy, worth a remarkable 1,591 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 192,025 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and the first step of recovery from alcoholism usually entails buying a bicycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emperio Maharlika's national animal is the Philippine Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Emperio Maharlika is ranked 5,529th in the world and 218th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 523.21 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
