The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.743 billion Phoronuans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Phoronus. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth 539 trillion Phoronuan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,217 Phoronuan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Phoronuan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Non-Movementarianism.

Phoronu is ranked 159,134th in the world and 9,311th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 8.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
