The Republic of Philjia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arthur Fleet with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.365 billion Philjians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newcastle. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Philjian economy, worth a remarkable 2,274 trillion Philjian Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 219,421 Philjian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and lobster tastes best when it is red. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philjia's national animal is the Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Philjia is ranked 4,925th in the world and 103rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 2,274 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
