The Bumbly Buzzing Apiary of House at Pooh Corner is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Winnipeg Pooh with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.096 billion Pooh Bears are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The House at Pooh Corner. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pooh economy, worth a remarkable 1,162 trillion honeys a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,636 honeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and no one gossips with Winnipeg Pooh during diplomatic summits. Crime is totally unknown. House at Pooh Corner's national animal is the Heffalump, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Honey Bee Goddess Worship.

House at Pooh Corner is ranked 272,603rd in the world and 9th in Hundred Acre Wood for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.55 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
