The Kingdom of Philimbesi is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Phillip with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 20.189 billion Philimbesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Philimbesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,821 trillion Greenbacks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 90,226 Greenbacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation continues to depend on foreigners for food, calling dibs is an unalienable right, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, and King Phillip is strangely popular with male politicians' wives. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philimbesi's national animal is the Timberwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Philimbesi is ranked 11,865th in the world and 615th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,928.72 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
