The Socialist Republic of Phinxia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Malik Karim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.475 billion Phinxians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nehken. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Phinxian economy, worth 154 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 104,730 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, nude art is becoming wildly popular, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and straitjackets are a common religious garb. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phinxia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Phinxia is ranked 135,845th in the world and 902nd in The Communist Bloc for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.14 percentage of bribes refused.
