The Confederate Empire of West Phoenicia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Glenton Gryphon- Bush II with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ritual sacrifices, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.579 billion West Phoenicians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne-Haven. The average income tax rate is 22.0%.

The frighteningly efficient West Phoenician economy, worth 900 trillion Ba'als a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,476 Ba'als, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West Phoenicia's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is True Path Faith.

West Phoenicia is ranked 12,724th in the world and 31st in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Black Market, with 26.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
