The Confederate Republic of Phallas is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ozymandias with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.585 billion Phallasians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bönnesberg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Phallasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,925 trillion Ômegas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 292,457 Ômegas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, Phallas's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown. Phallas's national animal is the Fenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Phallas is ranked 1,202nd in the world and 39th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 11,259.81 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
