The Pernicious Plutocracy of Honeydewistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Aidan Collier with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.007 billion Honeydewistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honeydewopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Honeydewistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 trillion rokkyivs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 213,274 rokkyivs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,887,313 per year while the poor average 3,395, a ratio of 555 to 1.

Citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Honeydewistania's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is earning money.

Honeydewistania is ranked 88,684th in the world and 3,289th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,117.91 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
