The Democratic Republic of Phantasus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.119 billion Phantasusians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Phantasusian economy, worth 413 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,842 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Voting is compulsory, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, organ donation is compulsory, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phantasus's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
