The Holy Golden Empire of Phalnia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Augustine III with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.691 billion Phalnians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coeur Imperial. The average income tax rate is 22.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Phalnian economy, worth a remarkable 2,734 trillion Phalnian Bank Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,851 Phalnian Bank Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, Emperor Augustine III is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phalnia's national animal is the Highland Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Church of the One Light.

Phalnia is ranked 51,522nd in the world and 1,038th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 255.79995434348 Days.
