The Grand Hive of The New Changeling Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High-Empress Lacewing with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 15.701 billion Changelings are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Solitude. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Changeling economy, worth a remarkable 4,035 trillion Valcourian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 257,048 Valcourian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, third world countries are rich in "I Love High Solitude" t-shirts, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Changeling Liberator". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Changeling Empire's national animal is the Manticore, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The New Changeling Empire is ranked 18,423rd in the world and 37th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
