The Federal Republic of Resurgence City is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Resurgence City. The average income tax rate is 56.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Resurgence City economy, worth 172 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing.

Alcoholics are lauded as national benefactors within the halls of the Ministry of Finance, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, and the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain.

Resurgence City's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
