The Jingoistic States of Bumblegaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Bee with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, humorless population of 3.54 billion Bumblegarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bumdon. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bumblegarian economy, worth 386 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 109,089 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, the Museum of Soybeans is the cultural heart of the nation, the nation is so apathetic that Bumblegarians can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 unimportant.

Bumblegaria is ranked 77,550th in the world and 2,682nd in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
