LeaderMr President Zephyros Acacius


The Free Land of Pheonisland is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr President Zephyros Acacius with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 937 million Phoenicians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthage. The average income tax rate is 31.1%.

The strong Phoenician economy, worth 54.7 trillion Phoenixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,383 Phoenixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mr President Zephyros Acacius has just been declared ruler of Pheonisland in an international press conference, sheep with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pheonisland is ranked 42,688th in the world and 2,134th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,599.1 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
