The Empire of Phampuya is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The cynical, devout population of 692 million Phampuyans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Phampuyan economy, worth 31.9 trillion Parabatays a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,150 Parabatays, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, the only science is political science, and top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phampuya's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phampuya is ranked 108,012th in the world and 5,047th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 36.03 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
