The Federal Republic of Resurgence City is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 980 million Resurgence City Citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Resurgence City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Resurgence City economy, worth 140 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 143,678 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 465,851 per year while the poor average 33,437, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

An increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Resurgence City's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Resurgence City is ranked 156,075th in the world and 4,994th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.53 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
