The Free Land of Pheonisland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 245 million Pheonislandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 21.4%.

The Pheonislandian economy, worth 12.7 trillion Phoenixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 51,945 Phoenixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, the government snoops on private internet connections, and polite commuters on the Pheonisland City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pheonisland's national animal is the sheep, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Pheonisland is ranked 68,829th in the world and 2,747th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 77.99 on the Hayek Index.
