The Confederate Empire of West Phoenicia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Glenton Gryphon- Bush II with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.382 billion West Phoenicians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne-Haven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.5%.

The frighteningly efficient West Phoenician economy, worth 511 trillion Ba'als a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 151,322 Ba'als, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 458,076 per year while the poor average 38,897, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to West Phoenicia, the Great Pyramid of Melbourne-Haven can be seen from miles away, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West Phoenicia's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Phoenicia is ranked 83,928th in the world and 1st in The NeoConfederate States of America for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 68.87 Workforce Participation Rate.
