The New Fascist Empire of Phoenik is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Thales Politios with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.967 billion Phoenikians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allodoxia. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenikian economy, worth a remarkable 1,636 trillion Drachmas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,712 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even snitches get stitches, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, newspapers are running a front-page picture of Thales Politios holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, and journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings. Crime is totally unknown. Phoenik's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Phoenik is ranked 212,180th in the world and 24th in Fifth Empire for Most Secular, with 7.51 Atheism Rate.
