The 9th of August Revolution of Honeydewistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Marcel Fraser with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.196 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 1,382 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 Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 223,095 rokkyivs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 729,237 per year while the poor average 51,303, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Parties on cruise ships go off with a real bang, in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, there's a mortuary next to every Honeydewistanian restaurant, and behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos. 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 89,611th in the world and 3,400th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,026.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
