The Greater Star Republic of Fen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Fennoscandia with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.15 billion Fen 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Vienna. The average income tax rate is 18.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Fen economy, worth 92.0 trillion euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,802 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fen's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Fen is ranked 49,395th in the world and 1st in World of Countryball for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.75 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
