The Glorious Holy Empire of Phoenix Coalition is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Phoenix Ember with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 14.691 billion Phoenix Coalitionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix Coalition City. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenix Coalitionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,715 trillion Phoenix Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 116,766 Phoenix Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Phoenix Coalitionian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", the nation's declaring that sharing nukes is caring, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenix Coalition's national animal is the Ultra Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Emperor Phoenix Ember.

Phoenix Coalition is ranked 53,720th in the world and 36th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Authoritarian, with 1,021.7 milliStalins.
