The Jingoistic States of Bumblegaria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Bee with an even hand, and remarkable for its feral children, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.606 billion Bumblegarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
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 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bumblegarian economy, worth 243 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 Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Average income is 93,577 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. 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.
