The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jessica Ramos with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.477 billion Markians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Benjamin Mark's hospitals, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benjamin Mark's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Dollar.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 3,915th in the West Pacific and 109,998th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -19 on the Hayek Index.
