The Autonomous Territory of Philadelphia Enclave is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.544 billion Philadelphia Enclaveans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philadelphia. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Philadelphia Enclavean economy, worth 160 trillion Garden state notes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 103,861 Garden state notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, the police double as repo men, and middle-aged metal fans quite enjoy being called "rebellious youths" by even older politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philadelphia Enclave's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Philadelphia Enclave is ranked 167,697th in the world and 4,287th in Lazarus for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 232.01 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
