The Malevolent Melons of Honeydewistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Marcel Fraser with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.479 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 1,529 trillion husks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 236,016 husks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,342,645 per year while the poor average 20,196, a ratio of 66.5 to 1.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, and solid-gold toilets are Honeydewistanian prisons' least expensive furnishings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Honeydewistania's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is swag 😎 😎 😎.

Honeydewistania is ranked 223,218th in the world and 8,287th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -16.43 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
