The Benevolent Kingdom of Fendlium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King William III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.238 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invercauld. The average income tax rate is 77.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fendlian economy, worth 161 trillion Fendlian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 130,436 Fendlian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, war criminals are given full state funerals, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and vacationing Fendlians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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, and its national religion is Fendlican Protestantism.

Fendlium is ranked 138,342nd in the world and 6,531st in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 27.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
