Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.821 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 97.4%.

The Pheltik economy, worth 551 trillion Talons a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 80,886 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. 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 164,801st in the world and 8,799th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -22.52 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
