The Balkan Paradise of Bumblegaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Bee with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.196 billion Bumblegarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bumdon. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bumblegarian economy, worth 802 trillion Staffinkies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 129,454 Staffinkies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, group hugs break out during floor votes, saying "don't do anything that Queen Bee wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bumblegaria's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is unimportant.

Bumblegaria is ranked 267,965th in the world and 12,557th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -550.84 on the Hayek Index.
