The Free Land of Phorusrhaconia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo and free-roaming dinosaurs. The cynical population of 418 million Phorusrhacidaes 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 32.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Phorusrhacos economy, worth 16.2 trillion Phoras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,764 Phoras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Phora mansions, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and superfoods are often seen as supervillains. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Phorusrhaconia's national animal is the Phorusrhacos.

Phorusrhaconia is ranked 182,619th in the world and 4,406th in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 112.5 cheeks per square mile.
