The United Kingdom of Hornetopia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 529 million Hornetopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watford. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hornetopian economy, worth 37.2 trillion Deeneys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,333 Deeneys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, the election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hornetopia's national animal is the Hornet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hornetopia is ranked 56,078th in the world and 2,039th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 76.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
