Honeybee and Beehive

Population885 million


The Theocracy of Honeybee and Beehive is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical, devout population of 885 million Desereteans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Honeybee and Beehivean economy, worth 23.8 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 26,855 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation excels at displacement, brain injury is seen as a desirable outcome rather than a side effect of contact sports, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and Honeybee and Beehive has designated Honeybee and Beehive City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Honeybee and Beehive's national animal is the Honeybee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Honeybee and Beehive is ranked 102,212th in the world and 5th in The Empire of Nova Roma for Safest, scoring 80.3 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
