The Benevolent Kingdom of Fendlium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King William III with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.586 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, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invercauld. The average income tax rate is 77.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fendlian economy, worth 209 trillion Fendlian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,054 Fendlian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fendlium's national animal is the Scottish Wild Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fendlican Protestantism.

Fendlium is ranked 96,589th in the world and 4,932nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 237.54 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
