The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 15.123 billion Blandings and Fenwickians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Spirituality, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ickenham. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The Blandings and Fenwickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,676 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 110,849 francs, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

A third of Blandings and Fenwickians are e-certified CEOs, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, His Supremely Eirenic Eminence is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, and tensions between the young and old have risen to record levels. 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 1,244th in the world and 5th in Texas for Most Devout, with 7,530.74 Prayers Per Hour.
