The Queendom of Crystalline Beekeepers United is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Don Wory with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.475 billion Crystalline Beekeepers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HComb. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.2%.

The powerhouse Crystalline Beekeeper economy, worth a remarkable 1,746 trillion Honey Jars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,987 Honey Jars, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

The hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Don Wory's wardrobe, economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, and the Crystalline Beekeeper delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crystalline Beekeepers United's national animal is the Queen Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Crystalline Beekeepers United is ranked 23,910th in the world and 1,155th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 78.34 on the Human Development Index.
