The Benevolent Kingdom of Fendlium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Paul II with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.172 billion 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invercauld. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fendlian economy, worth 896 trillion Fendlian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,250 Fendlian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", Fendlium recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, and major cities run on potato batteries. 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 Wild Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fendlicanism.

Fendlium is ranked 225,316th in the world and 8,922nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.39 Obesity Rate.
