The Glorious Empire of Phoenix Coalition is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Terminator Founder Phoenix with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.865 billion Phoenix Coalitionians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenix Coalitionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,359 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 114,613 Phoenix Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, and the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market. 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 Terminator Founder Phoenix.

Phoenix Coalition is ranked 188,447th in the world and 402nd in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
