The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.825 billion Phoronuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Phoronus. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth a remarkable 2,412 trillion Phoronuan Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,487 Phoronuan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, official government guidance encourages binge behaviors, Loud Patriotic Music Day has been ranked the seventh best new holiday of the year, and the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoronu's national animal is the Quick Toed Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Non-Movementarianism.

Phoronu is ranked 303,376th in the world and 8,757th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -445.22 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
