The Jingoistic States of Bumblegaria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its digital currency, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 551 million Bumblegarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bumdon. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bumblegarian economy, worth 36.8 trillion Staffinkies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,776 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Bumblegaria, and Bumdon's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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.

Bumblegaria is ranked 101,624th in the world and 4,024th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 52.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
