The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.617 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Phoronus. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,981 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,546 Phoronuan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. 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 5,083rd in the world and 231st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,713.02 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
