The Angelic Empire of The Wires Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Phoenix Rust with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.085 billion wireans 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.1%.

The frighteningly efficient wirean economy, worth 539 trillion Wires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 174,903 Wires, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 753,284 per year while the poor average 25,911, a ratio of 29.1 to 1.

The nation's favourite colour is gold (The Wires Empire has found 3 easter eggs), the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, and rumour has it Supreme Phoenix Rust needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Wires Empire's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Knowledge.

The Wires Empire is ranked 50,578th in the world and 588th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,947.26 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
