The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.875 billion Blandings and Fenwickians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ickenham. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blandings and Fenwick's national animal is the green monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the franc.

Blandings and Fenwick is ranked 19th in Texas and 5,147th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 6 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
