The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.02 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 96.9%.

The Pheltik economy, worth 813 trillion Talons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 90,181 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against Pheltik ambassadors, and economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society. 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 6,788th in the world and 369th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
