The Fickle Freehold of Fennec is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Madam Khadija with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 15.05 billion Fennecians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Defense is also considered important, while Public Transport and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remoulade. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The strong Fennecian economy, worth 718 trillion figs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 47,743 figs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 149,533 per year while the poor average 11,686, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fennec's national animal is the flea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is something mysterious.

Fennec is ranked 41,887th in the world and 1,437th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring 63.8 on the Rand Index.
