The Grand Empire of Phoenix2012 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Lilliť with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.375 billion Phoenixians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 2,115 trillion Diamonds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 225,671 Diamonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Phoenixians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, and a third of Phoenixians are e-certified CEOs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenix2012's national animal is the L' Fenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lillytasticism.

Phoenix2012 is ranked 11,270th in the world and 380th in Osiris for Longest Average Lifespans, with 82.22 Years.
