The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a massive, safe nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.678 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 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth 795 trillion Phoronuan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,043 Phoronuan Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, a video of G Edwardius wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and the Phoronu Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament. 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 4,144th in the world and 213th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 8,993.39 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
