The Corporate Wasteland of Honeydewistania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aidan Collier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.622 billion Honeydewistanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honeydewopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Honeydew economy, worth 480 trillion rokkyivs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 132,653 rokkyivs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 698,783 per year while the poor average 13,419, a ratio of 52.1 to 1.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the government is a law unto itself, agricultural employees work for peanuts, and the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Honeydewistania's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Honeydewistania is ranked 151,467th in the world and 1st in Logos for Smartest Citizens, with 15.46 Quips Per Hour.
