The Totalitarian Commonwealth of Fydelia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Hoffman with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.722 billion Fydelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fydelia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fydelian economy, worth 370 trillion Fydelian Rubies a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,039 Fydelian Rubies, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, and it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fydelia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Church of Fydelia.

Fydelia is ranked 12,137th in the world and 29th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,062.18 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
