The Benevolent Kingdom of Fendlium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by His Majesty King William III with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.041 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invercauld. The average income tax rate is 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fendlian economy, worth 130 trillion Fendlian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,058 Fendlian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 The Church of Fendlium.

Fendlium is ranked 75,576th in the world and 4,010th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,030.23 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
