The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.541 billion Phelnesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 97.0%.

The Pheltik economy, worth 906 trillion Talons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 95,038 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

This year's comedy award has left mothers-in-law seething, there is something rotten in the state of Pheltikius, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, and weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements. 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 54,852nd in the world and 2,684th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 155,328.35 Standard Monetary Units.
