The Hellhole of Fudgedup is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Jake Mao Paul with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.984 billion Fudgedupians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Spirituality, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slumtown. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Fudgedupian economy, worth a remarkable 3,950 trillion cheques a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 395,728 cheques, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,706,437 per year while the poor average 3,562, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Fudgedup's national animal is the Landwhale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Fudgedup is ranked 232,975th in the world and 23rd in The Graveyard for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -87.98 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
