The Principality of Bienenhalde is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prince Anselm with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 7.24 billion Bienenhalders are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 1,681 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 232,208 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and there is a dearth of space for new houses. 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 204,664th in the world and 27th in Vaporwave Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 28.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
