The Free Land of United Hives of Honey Bees is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Honey Comb II with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.465 billion United Hives of Honey Beesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deep Space Nine. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient United Hives of Honey Beesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,854 trillion Honeys a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 286,794 Honeys, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,305,209 per year while the poor average 38,524, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. United Hives of Honey Bees's national animal is the Beekeeper, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

United Hives of Honey Bees is ranked 20th in Lazarus and 523rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 472 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
