The Most Serene Republic of Blandings and Fenwick is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Supremely Eirenic Eminence with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 20.993 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, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ickenham. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Blandings and Fenwickian economy, worth a remarkable 2,354 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 Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 112,138 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blandings and Fenwickian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. 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 74,989th in the world and 37th in Texas for Longest Average Lifespans, with 76.59 years.
