The Ooh Me So Sportsy of Fedele is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yes Goldbong with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 12.305 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 77.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Fedelean economy, worth 740 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 60,156 Florins, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, jaywalking will put an end to a family tree, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile. 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 211,656th in the world and 27th in The Sportsbook for Least Corrupt Governments, with 74.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
