The Confederacy of Phobi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Deimos with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.262 billion Phobians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murk. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phobian economy, worth a remarkable 2,409 trillion Schustaffels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 234,827 Schustaffels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 734,109 per year while the poor average 57,635, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Phobi, factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phobi's national animal is the Infidel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Phobi is ranked 5,368th in the world and 269th in Osiris for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 37,792.77 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
