Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.435 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 97.3%.

The Pheltik economy, worth 533 trillion Talons a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 82,869 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. 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 148,444th in the world and 7,423rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -22.36 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
