The Free Land of United Hives of Honey Bees is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Queen Honey Comb II with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.313 billion United Hiveses of Honey Beesian are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Commerce, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deep Space Nine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture.

The Great United Hives of Honey Bees Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Hives of Honey Bees's national animal is the Beekeeper, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Honey.

United Hives of Honey Bees is ranked 2,838th in Lazarus and 104,888th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -8 on the Enoch Index.
