Population8.629 billion



The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.629 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 96.8%.

The Pheltik economy, worth 714 trillion Talons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 82,747 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions. 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 65,512th in the world and 3,484th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 35.84 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
