The Power Corruption and Lies of Honeydewistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dictator-for-Life Marcel Fraser with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.352 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 solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honeydewopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Honeydewistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,940 trillion husks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 264,002 husks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,444,366 per year while the poor average 2,738, a ratio of 892 to 1.

Almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, people all over Honeydewistania are dying of 'Mad Sheep Disease', wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Honeydewistania's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is phony Beatlemania.

Honeydewistania is ranked 240,386th in the world and 8,247th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -19.75 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
