The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.803 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.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation leads Texas in per capita stalking, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and atheists and evolutionary biologists are fleeing the country like rats from a sinking ship. 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 35th in Texas and 15,559th in the world for Safest, scoring 244.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
