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 anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.658 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, although Spirituality 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 1.6%.

The Blandings and Fenwickian economy, worth a remarkable 1,899 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 107,552 francs, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 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 170,153rd in the world and 178th in Texas for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -12.25 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
