The Astonishing Counties of Pchelionia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Almighty George with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, disturbing lack of elderly people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.909 billion Pchelinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pchelinian economy, worth 240 trillion stable altyns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 125,868 stable altyns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 387,452 per year while the poor average 31,588, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pchelionia's national animal is the strong horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pchelionia is ranked 68,853rd in the world and 1st in Canottostan for Highest Economic Output, with 240 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
