The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.123 billion Phelnesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexia. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The large but inefficient Pheltik economy, worth 615 trillion Talons a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry. Average income is 75,736 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pheltikius's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pheltikius is ranked 30,260th in the world and 1,464th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 52,584.19 Standard Monetary Units.
