The Queendom of Crystalline Beekeepers United is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Don Wory with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.94 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HComb. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Crystalline Beekeeper economy, worth a remarkable 1,727 trillion Honey Jars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,520 Honey Jars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 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 well-funded 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 41,269th in the world and 1,851st in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 695.02 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
