Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kristen Ou with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.343 billion Markians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,794 trillion Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 192,046 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is totally unknown. Benjamin Mark's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 207th in the world and 2nd in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.65 on the Human Development Index.
