The Commonwealth of Phanama is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Bowleaf with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.437 billion Phanamans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spiritus. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Phanaman economy, worth 144 trillion Phanaman Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,509 Phanaman Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phanama's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phanama is ranked 20,320th in the world and 641st in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
