The Guiding Light of Imperial Phoenix Terra is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Imperial Phoenix Septeu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 21.735 billion Imperial Phoenix Terrans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra Prime. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Phoenix Terran economy, worth a remarkable 3,566 trillion credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,075 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Phoenix Terra's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is three major religions and one holy city.

Imperial Phoenix Terra is ranked 204,426th in the world and 8,040th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -575.71 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
