The Free Land of Pheonisland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mr President Zephyros Acacius with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.095 billion Phoenicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthage. The average income tax rate is 29.4%.

The strong Phoenician economy, worth 64.2 trillion Phoenixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 58,623 Phoenixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The constant playing of Merry Birthday on Phoenician radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, economists claim no news is good news, and saying "don't do anything that Mr President Zephyros Acacius wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pheonisland's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pheonisland is ranked 61,060th in the world and 3,337th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.53 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
