The Holy of Phoenician State is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Victor Vägivald with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.507 billion Phoenicians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrus. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Phoenician economy, worth 221 trillion Phoenician Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 88,423 Phoenician Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, the national defense strategy is a little floppy, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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 91,561st in the world and 9th in The Roleplaying Paradise for Largest Populations, with 2.51 billion Capita.
