The Corporate Wasteland of Honeydewistania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Aidan Collier with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.616 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, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Administration are ignored. 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 479 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 132,597 rokkyivs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 717,312 per year while the poor average 12,680, a ratio of 56.6 to 1.

Stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, Aidan Collier dines while Honeydewopolis burns, Honeydew TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. 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 165,483rd in the world and 1st in Logos for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -10.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
