The Republic of Phydios is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Ross with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 6.561 billion Phydiosians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sula. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phydiosian economy, worth 923 trillion quinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,696 quinoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, Phydios has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phydios's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phydios is ranked 13,265th in the world and 8th in Right to Life for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
