The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kaylee Hernandez with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.843 billion Markians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 99%. 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.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Dollars to support the Tourism industry, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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 4,069th in the West Pacific and 116,235th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -22 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
