The Grand Hive of The New Changeling Empire is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by High-Empress Lacewing with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 21.403 billion Changelings are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Solitude. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Changeling economy, worth a remarkable 7,529 trillion Valcourian Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 351,786 Valcourian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, the government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, and endangered bison are herded across the border to prevent them from trampling on native prairie grass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 1,826th in the world and 8th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 20,487.4 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
