The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.239 billion Blandings and Fenwickians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Spirituality also on the agenda, 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 1.6%.

The Blandings and Fenwickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,845 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 107,066 francs, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

An epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the weather in Ickenham is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime 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 155,712th in the world and 147th in Texas for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -12.25 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
