The Empire of Phaenix is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, fear of technology, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 486 million Phaenixians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phaerix. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Phaenixian economy, worth 31.9 trillion aeris a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,628 aeris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Phaerix. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phaenix's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phaenix is ranked 21,006th in the world and 1st in Vicit Regna for Most Authoritarian, with 2,303.09 milliStalins.
