The Kingdom of Phaesis is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, feral children, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 518 million Phaesisians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corone. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.3%.

The powerhouse Phaesisian economy, worth 40.5 trillion cours a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 78,117 cours, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 414,107 per year while the poor average 7,798, a ratio of 53.1 to 1.

The nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, and nine out of ten citizens of Phaesis answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phaesis's national animal is the elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Phaesis is ranked 205,191st in the world and 4th in Phaesisian Empire for Nudest, with 26 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
