The Benjamin Patrick Fan-Club of Appendia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Benjamin Patrick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.93 billion Patricians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Defense and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Benjamin Patrick's Office. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Patrician economy, worth 194 trillion Patricoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Retail, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 66,257 Patricoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, one of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Appendia's national animal is the Patrickangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Appendia is ranked 213,248th in the world and 453rd in Forest for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -20 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
