The Pharcyde

The Toblerone Trees of The Pharcyde is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 673 million Pharcyders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Labincalifornia. The average income tax rate is 38.6%.

The strong from the Pharcyde economy, worth 42.3 trillion Humboldts a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,922 Humboldts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, and a tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pharcyde's national animal is the Schmooche Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Pharcyde is ranked 18,837th in the world and 1,101st in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
