The Random Zombie of Blandings and Fenwick is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.99 billion 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 nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, research into 'designer babies' is banned, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Blandings and Fenwick's radio stations. 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 22nd in Texas and 5,945th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 6 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
