The Unholy Autocracy of Honeydewistania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Aidan Collier with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.161 billion Honeydewistanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honeydewopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Honeydew economy, worth 688 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 Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 165,470 rokkyivs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 756,489 per year while the poor average 22,044, a ratio of 34.3 to 1.

The government is allowing greater autonomy for some regions in the hopes of quelling growing secessionist movements, caroling is considered a public disturbance, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 none.

Honeydewistania is ranked 63,225th in the world and 1st in Logos for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 70.76 Workforce Participation Rate.
