The Republic of Phualand is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ethan with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.958 billion Phuanese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Nogawa. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Phualandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,083 trillion Phua dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,934 Phua dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, tourists visit Phualand to mass-moon Phualandian politicians, and a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Phualand's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phualand is ranked 147,868th in the world and 6,713th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 29.22 on the Rand Index.
