The Republic of Phualand is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ethan with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.461 billion Phuanese 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Nogawa. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Phualandian economy, worth 603 trillion Phua dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,240 Phua dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. 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 113,371st in the world and 6,239th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.99 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
