The Republic of Phydios is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Ross with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.35 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sula. The average income tax rate is 72.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Phydiosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,472 trillion quinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,497 quinoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, school uniforms are compulsory, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 19,001st in the world and 20th in Right to Life for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,435.86 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
