The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is the lowest ranked order of chivalry in the United Kingdom, and therefore the one containing the most members, recognised for a variety of distinguished deeds. The two highest ranks are Knight (or Dame) Grand Cross and Knight (or Dame) Commander*, which involve actual knighthood. The next rank is Commander, followed by Officer, and finally Member.

Presumably Minnesota Jones has done something particularly important to have been granted such an honour.

* Jane Goodall, by the way, is a Dame Commander of the British Empire.
