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 notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.099 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 tenet of free speech is held dear, meat-eating is frowned upon, the psych wards are overflowing with transsexuals, and an enormous health awareness programme is underway. 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 109th in Texas and 79,622nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 41 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
