The Hellhole of Fudgedup is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Jake Mao Paul with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.493 billion Fudgedupians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 4,232 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 403,399 cheques, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,778,293 per year while the poor average 3,630, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Chairman Jake Mao Paul is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, and red fabric is banned. 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 2,752nd in the world and 3rd in The Graveyard for Highest Economic Output, with 4,232 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
