The Most Serene Republic of Physaliae is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 313 million Physaliaeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 60.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Physaliaean economy, worth 8.93 trillion wiwis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 28,527 wiwis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Leader's portrait, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Physaliae's national animal is the Physalia Physalis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Physaliae is ranked 215,177th in the world and 8,509th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
