The Benevolent Kingdom of Fendlium is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by His Majesty King William III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 887 million Fendlians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invercauld. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fendlian economy, worth 106 trillion Fendlian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 120,006 Fendlian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fendlium's national animal is the Scottish Wild Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fendlium is ranked 109,013th in the world and 5,918th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
