The Colony of Worker bee 4 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.236 billion Worker bee 4ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Worker bee 4ian economy, worth 590 trillion honeys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 112,696 honeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, catching an old friend by surprise on the street can be a shocking experience, billions of honeys are spent to take high-quality photos of the Bee Larvae Nebula, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Worker bee 4's national animal is the bee larvae, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Worker bee 4 is ranked 158,479th in the world and 18th in Bee hive for Smartest Citizens, with 25.21 quips per hour.
