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 museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.303 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 military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, all tariffs have been abolished, and well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time. 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 20th in Texas and 4,634th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 10 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
