The Pernicious Plutocracy of Honeydewistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Aidan Collier with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.013 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 1,287 trillion rokkyivs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 214,158 rokkyivs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,895,134 per year while the poor average 3,409, a ratio of 555 to 1.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Honeydewistania's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is earning money.

Honeydewistania is ranked 2,559th in the world and 143rd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 15,627.28 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
