The Feudal Democracy of EnderShnovia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Regent Freidholt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.793 billion EnderShnovians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlasdam. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient EnderShnovian economy, worth 639 trillion Novs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,415 Novs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, dark net forums trade the encryption keys to immortality, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EnderShnovia's national animal is the Red-Ringed Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is EnderShnovian Atlasism.

EnderShnovia is ranked 28,091st in the world and 832nd in The East Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 11,542.1 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
