The Imperial Confederation of Phallas is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ozymandias with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.458 billion Phallasians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bönnesberg. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Phallasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,193 trillion Markishes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 267,832 Markishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and consumption of cat memes has 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 173,970th in the world and 389th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pro-Market, scoring -69.22 on the Rand Index.
