The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a colossal, cultured 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, democratic population of 9.684 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.

The tiny government prioritizes Spirituality, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ickenham. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.5%.

The thriving Blandings and Fenwickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,246 francs, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

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. Blandings and Fenwick's national animal is the green monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Blandings and Fenwick is ranked 106th in Texas and 89,789th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.079 Stalins.
