The Jingoistic States of Bumblegaria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Bee with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.153 billion Bumblegarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Bumblegarian economy, worth 174 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,990 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.
