The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.27 billion Phoronuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Phoronus. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth 676 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 common. Average income is an impressive 158,409 Phoronuan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. 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 4,087th in the world and 200th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 166 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
