The Most Serene Republic of Phoronu is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by G Edwardius with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.139 billion Phoronuans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Phoronus. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Phoronuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,536 trillion Phoronuan Dollars a year, is highly specialized 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 impressive 168,088 Phoronuan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, treason is relative, the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, and you're only as old as you feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phoronu's national animal is the Quick Toed Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Non-Movementarianism.

Phoronu is ranked 2,394th in the world and 142nd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,124.1 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
