The Free Land of Milk and Honeydew is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 168 million Milk and Honeydewians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Milk and Honeydewian economy, worth 7.13 trillion schmliras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 42,440 schmliras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Milk and Honeydew's national animal is the big brown horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Milk and Honeydew is ranked 26,738th in the world and 1st in The Big Fridge of Friends for Lowest Crime Rates, with 76.19 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
