The Parlamenta Respubliko of Pheonisland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mr President Tullius Karpos with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 2.931 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, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kartago. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Phoenician economy, worth 186 trillion Ŝekels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,773 Ŝekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Pheonisland is ranked 160,375th in the world and 6,796th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1.29 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
