The Republic of People of Phoenix is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Reverend Shrum with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.891 billion People of Phoenixians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porsha-Lyn City. The average income tax rate is 46.3%.

The frighteningly efficient People of Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,268 trillion Phoenix Dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 259,310 Phoenix Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, no one tells their son "you're the man of the house" any more, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and gay men commonly complain about their time of the month. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. People of Phoenix's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hedonism.

People of Phoenix is ranked 18,319th in the world and 6th in Gypsy Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,934.88 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
