The Astonishing Counties of Pchelionia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Almighty George with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.025 billion Pchelinians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Administration, with Environment, Defense, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pchelinian economy, worth 260 trillion stable altyns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 128,616 stable altyns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 631,133 per year while the poor average 15,001, a ratio of 42.1 to 1.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, and there's some really clean windows in Pchelinian houses. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pchelionia's national animal is the strong horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pchelionia is ranked 20,015th in the world and 1st in Canottostan for Most Developed, scoring 82.86 on the Human Development Index.
