The Principality of Bienenhalde is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Anselm with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, devout population of 9.268 billion Bienenhalders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bienenhaldish economy, worth a remarkable 2,173 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 234,563 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, and replacement organs are grown in vats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bienenhalde's national animal is the honey bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pietistic Lutheranism.

Bienenhalde is ranked 230,425th in the world and 4th in Vaporwave Paradise for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -12.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
