The Kingdom of Philjia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Arthur Fleet with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.993 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 2,193 trillion Philjian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 219,505 Philjian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Philjian politicians, and the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens. 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 57,747th in the world and 3rd in The Transgender Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,214.67 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
