The 9th of August Revolution of Honeydewistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Marcel Fraser with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.177 billion Honeydewistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honeydewopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Honeydewistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,368 trillion rokkyivs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 221,602 rokkyivs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 718,507 per year while the poor average 51,572, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that he is in fact a crook after all, and vehicle strikes into low bridges are on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Honeydewistania's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is earning money.

Honeydewistania is ranked 126,997th in the world and 4,141st in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -68.85 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
