The Hellhole of Fudgedup is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Jake Mao Paul with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.99 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, although Industry is also considered important, 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 3,353 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 373,032 cheques, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,021,288 per year while the poor average 10,269, a ratio of 294 to 1.

Teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, religious classes are compulsory for all school students, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it". 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 7,137th in the world and 1st in The Graveyard for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,911.55 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
