The Feudal Democracy of EnderShnovia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Regent Freidholt with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.358 billion EnderShnovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlasdam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.7%.

The all-consuming EnderShnovian economy, worth 618 trillion Novs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,818 Novs, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, third world countries are rich in "I Love Atlasdam" t-shirts, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EnderShnovia's national animal is the Red-Ringed Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is EnderShnovian Atlasism.

EnderShnovia is ranked 17,009th in the world and 481st in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.4 on the Human Development Index.
