The Benevolent Kingdom of Fendlium is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Paul II with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.812 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fendlian economy, worth 687 trillion Fendlian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified 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 180,222 Fendlian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Invercauld to enjoy their national art, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Fendlium" on tails, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions. 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 254th in the world and 72nd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 207,602 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
