The Proud Placental Heritage of Fedele is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yes Goldbong with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 16.082 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, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fedelean economy, worth 967 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 60,135 Florins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks, pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, and there's a mortuary next to every Fedelean restaurant. 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 256,225th in the world and 84th in Catholic for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12.47 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
