The Republic of Phualand is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ethan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.325 billion Phuanese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal 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 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phualandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 trillion Phua 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 178,301 Phua dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. 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 227,538th in the world and 9,572nd in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 5,883.96 Standard Monetary Units.
