The Kingdom of Fedel is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rodrick with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.439 billion Fedelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fedec. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fedelian economy, worth 467 trillion Feds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,827 Feds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fedel's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Fedel is ranked 7,299th in the world and 20th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 8 Valid Endorsements.
