The Jingoistic States of Bumblegaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Bee with a fair hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, smutty television, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.33 billion Bumblegarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bumdon. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bumblegarian economy, worth 201 trillion Staffinkies 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 86,450 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Bumblegaria have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bumblegaria's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is BeeNiceism.

Bumblegaria is ranked 163,233rd in the world and 6,240th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -107.89 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
