The Kingdom of Fedel is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rodrick with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.184 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fedec. The average income tax rate is 52.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fedelian economy, worth 737 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, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 142,335 Feds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Fedelians, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 165,597th in the world and 15th in Ersetum for Most Pro-Market, scoring -55.38 on the Rand Index.
