The Republic of Phydios is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Ross with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.022 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sula. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Phydiosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion quinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,953 quinoes, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Sula, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. 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 148,856th in the world and 144th in Right to Life for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
