The Acadian Union of Phillippeland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Party of Phillippeland with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 6.251 billion Canucks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Royal. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Canuck economy, worth a remarkable 1,367 trillion Habitants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 218,831 Habitants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children often kick Buffaloes for amusement, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Phillippeland, guns don't kill people — heroes do, and the nation has been declared a nuclear-free zone. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Phillippeland's national animal is the Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Phillippeland is ranked 239,540th in the world and 129th in Confederacy of Layem for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -28.51 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
