The Republic of Phydios is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ross with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.009 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sula. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phydiosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,434 trillion quinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,169 quinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government builds houses for foreign newcomers, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, Arms Manufacturing facilities are being turned into jaguar habitats, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 4,912th in the world and 6th in Right to Life for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,261.71 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
