The Balkan Paradise of Bumblegaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Bee with an even hand, and renowned for its feral children, parental licensing program, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 3.84 billion Bumblegarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bumdon. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bumblegarian economy, worth 411 trillion Staffinkies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 107,103 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Queen Bee sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 unimportant.

Bumblegaria is ranked 1,051st in the world and 41st in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 99.13 Atheism Rate.
