The Omnipotent Power of Phrados is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Retep Pern with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 14.344 billion Phradians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pac. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Phradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,854 trillion Drazzes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 129,292 Drazzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phrados's national animal is the Bong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phrados is ranked 75,007th in the world and 500th in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 19.98 Prayers Per Hour.
