The Geniocracy of Phillius is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Pilot with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.189 billion Philliusians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Venice. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Philliusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,189 trillion cashmoneys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 267,364 cashmoneys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pilot spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and the tobacco industry has burnt out. Crime is totally unknown. Phillius's national animal is the Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Phillius is ranked 1,256th in the world and 39th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.47 on the Human Development Index.
