The Democratic Republic of New Phyrreus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Cactus with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 19.717 billion Phyrreans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phyrreus. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phyrrean economy, worth a remarkable 2,998 trillion Sovereigns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,055 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Phyrreus" t-shirts, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Phyrreus's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Phyrreus is ranked 6,440th in the world and 385th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.32 on the Human Development Index.
