The Black Dog of Phlebacite is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Supreme Bas Mungo of Phleb with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.665 billion Phlebacitean Whitfurnooyabasses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Feersum Glass Cow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Phlebacitean economy, worth a remarkable 2,317 trillion marvins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 409,123 marvins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,870,413 per year while the poor average 54,504, a ratio of 34.3 to 1.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and the dead fish in the national rivers aren't decomposing because even bacteria can't survive the levels of toxicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phlebacite's national animal is the lesser spotted humpbacked gnubradoodle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Phlebacite is ranked 191,638th in the world and 1,632nd in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -283.72 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
