Hive Founder

Population5.486 billion


The Protectorate of Hive Founder is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 5.486 billion Hive Founderians 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 medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 21.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Hive Founderian economy, worth 231 trillion Honeys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,223 Honeys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, military spending is on the increase, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hive Founder's national animal is the Bee.

Hive Founder is ranked 178,783rd in the world and 5th in Hive for Highest Food Quality, scoring 9.5 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
