The Disgruntled Veterinarians of The Pharcyde is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Slimkid3 with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed population of 1.38 billion Pharcyders are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Z. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving from the Pharcyde economy, worth 119 trillion Humboldts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 86,309 Humboldts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Men stare at wall-pictures of Slimkid3's face when they visit public urinals, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, and young criminals are told they'll go to bed without supper if they do it again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pharcyde's national animal is the Schmooche Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is God-ism.

The Pharcyde is ranked 46,911th in the world and 926th in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 49.84 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
