OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United Kingdom of Hornetopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Lord of the Realm with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.87 billion Saxons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rock City. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hornetopian economy, worth 134 trillion Groats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,083 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hornetopia's national animal is the Dog of War, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hornetopia is ranked 13,193rd in the world and 448th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 117.07 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
