The Constitutional monarchy of Phoenician State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Perforto Vägivald with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.137 billion Phoenicians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.9%.

The powerhouse Phoenician economy, worth 98.7 trillion Phoenician Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 86,798 Phoenician Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, and new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoenician State's national animal is the Hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Phoenician State is ranked 215,396th in the world and 461st in The Free Nations Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12.96 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
