The Hellhole of Fudgedup is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Jake Mao Paul with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.511 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 4,241 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 403,540 cheques, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,779,616 per year while the poor average 3,632, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. 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 243,860th in the world and 224th in The Graveyard for Most Secular, with 0.13 Atheism Rate.
