The Fiefdom of Appendia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 671 million Human Friends are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Spirituality, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.3%.

The strong Human Friend economy, worth 37.6 trillion Friendships a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,007 Friendships, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and bungee jumpers frequently go splat. Crime is almost non-existent. Appendia's national animal is the Turkey-Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Appendia is ranked 54,278th in the world and 68th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,833.07 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
