People of Phoenix

Population6.049 billion

CapitalPorsha-Lyn City
LeaderReverend Shrum


The Republic of People of Phoenix is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Reverend Shrum with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.049 billion People of Phoenixians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porsha-Lyn City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient People of Phoenixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,775 trillion Phoenixes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 293,449 Phoenixes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,044,243 per year while the poor average 59,371, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

War criminals are given full state funerals, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, aides are afraid to ask if Reverend Shrum wants a cup of tea or coffee, and Reverend Shrum is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. People of Phoenix's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hedonism.

People of Phoenix is ranked 1,748th in the world and 1st in Gypsy Lands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.04 million Standard Monetary Units.
