The Research Station of Beecave is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dell Conagher with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.89 billion Engineers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Texas. The average income tax rate is 57.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Engineer economy, worth 651 trillion metals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,452 metals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, and the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire. Crime is totally unknown. Beecave's national animal is the canary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Area Denial.

Beecave is ranked 5,111th in the world and 2nd in The Badlands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,872.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
