The Empire of Pheltikius is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Phelko with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.179 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 97.5%.

The large but inefficient Pheltik economy, worth 581 trillion Talons a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 81,063 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Alexia make great practice for foreign snipers. 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 15,662nd in the world and 520th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 215 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
