The Oppressed Peoples of Philville2 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 468 million Philville2ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Philville2ian economy, worth 28.7 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,395 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Philville2 Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philville2's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Philville2 is ranked 194,664th in the world and 7,680th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.86 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
