The Superpower of The Phoenix Milita

The Phoenix Milita is ranked 1,968 out of 88,596 for the Largest Nations in the world and was founded July 4th 2003.


The Phoenix Milita is a Constitution-based federal empire with an extremely powerful head of state leading the government. The head of state -- called President, Leader, Supreme Commander, or simply Field Marshall -- administrates most major aspects of the nation through a carefully selected cabinet and is essentially "leader for life" unless he willingly steps down. Most levels of government beneath the Executive level are controlled by a Senate that is subject to democratic elections every few years, except for the Head/Leader of the Senate, who is installed for life jointly by the Head of State and combined Senate.

Head of State

Field Marshall Maximus Seville II is the Head of State and also the commander in chief of the armed forces


The Senate debates many domestic and international issues, and conducts much of the governing of the people. But the Head of State has an absolute veto power, and essentially has the final word on any new law.

Leader of the Senate: John Piazza

War Department

The War Department sees to the recruitment, training, maintenance and deployment of the armed forces, both defensive and offensive, in both war time and peace time.

The Superpower of The Phoenix Milita is a massive, safe and economically powerful nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of more than 8 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator(Field Marshall Maximus Seville II), who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defense, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by Arms Manufacturing and is followed by the the Automobile Manufacturing industry and Uranium Mining industries. All of the major industries are dominated by Phoenix Dynamix INC, a massive conglomerate of companies which are more or less controlled by the government to some degree. Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of grueling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and manual laborers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favorite drink, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, people who are terrified of needles are torn between their phobia and free health care, and gun ownership is compulsory. Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and military service is compulsory. The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Phoenix Milita's national animal is the Red Fox which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Shell Casing.


The Phoenix Milita was formed July 4th, 2001, by 5 million Tyradorian military hard-liners and thier families. In late 2004, TPM finished what it started, conquering Tyrador in just 2 months. Today TPM is one one of the world's great powers and makes an impact on international trade with its massive and active aircraft production facilities.

Economy - overview:

TPM has one of the largest and most technologically powerful economy in the world, with a per capita GDP of 32,055.83. In this market-oriented economy, private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions, and the federal and state governments buy needed goods and services predominantly in the private marketplace. TPM business firms enjoy considerably greater flexibility than their counterparts in Western Europe and Japan in decisions to expand capital plant, to lay off surplus workers, and to develop new products. At the same time, they face higher barriers to entry in their rivals' home markets than the barriers to entry of foreign firms in TPM markets. TPM firms are at or near the forefront in technological advances, especially in computers and in medical, aerospace, and military equipment. The war in March/April 2003 between a TPM-led coalition and Islamaisbad shifted resources to the military where they have remained for the past 4 years. Unemployment was at 2.68% in mid 2006. Long-term problems include rapidly rising medical and pension costs of an aging population, constant threat of alien invasion, sizable budget deficits, and stagnation of family income in the lower economic groups.
