The Ooh Me So Sportsy of Fedele is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Yes Goldbong with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 12.116 billion Fedeleans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 77.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Fedelean economy, worth 725 trillion Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Average income is 59,876 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Fedelean humor gets, merriment is might when jesters come calling with puppets in the night, and membership in Hedonism is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fedele's national animal is the placenta bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hedonism.

Fedele is ranked 92,378th in the world and 15th in The Sportsbook for Most Authoritarian, with 692.59 milliStalins.
