The Confederate Empire of West Phoenicia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Glenton Gryphon- Bush II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.538 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 31.9%.

The frighteningly efficient West Phoenician economy, worth a remarkable 1,068 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 common. Average income is an impressive 163,435 Ba'als, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, Melbourne-Haven Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and books are so highly regarded in West Phoenicia that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. 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 196,306th in the world and 83rd in Republic of Conservative Nations for Safest, scoring 10.65 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
