The Democratic Republic of Feniksiya is a large, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 89 million Feniksians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Feniksiyan economy, worth 2.34 trillion Phencs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,343 Phencs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget, the stock market has been destroyed for its own protection, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Feniksiya's national animal is the Phoenix.

Feniksiya is ranked 251,549th in the world and 357th in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.44 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
