The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 15.818 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, outspoken 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 1.5%.

The Blandings and Fenwickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,697 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 107,317 francs, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tensions between the young and old have risen to record levels, the Blandings and Fenwickian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 25,169th in the world and 44th in Texas for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,250.31 Tourists Per Hour.
