The Republic of Phualand is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ethan with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.849 billion Phuanese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Phua. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phualandian economy, worth 279 trillion Phua dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,895 Phua dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Phualand's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phualand is ranked 5,246th in the world and 264th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 121,200.33 Standard Monetary Units.
