The Jingoistic States of Bumblegaria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Queen Bee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.323 billion Bumblegarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bumdon. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Bumblegarian economy, worth 199 trillion Staffinkies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 85,742 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bumblegaria's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is BeeNiceism.
