The Empire of West Phoenicia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Glenton Gryphon- Bush II with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.406 billion West Phoenicians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne-Haven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.2%.

The frighteningly efficient West Phoenician economy, worth a remarkable 1,189 trillion Ba'als a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 160,575 Ba'als, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 720,974 per year while the poor average 22,102, a ratio of 32.6 to 1.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends. Crime is totally unknown. West Phoenicia's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is True Path Faith.

West Phoenicia is ranked 12,000th in the world and 10th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,599.25 Tourists Per Hour.
