The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ashley Lawrence with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.093 billion Markians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth 969 trillion Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 159,179 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Benjamin Mark. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is a major religion.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 92nd in the West Pacific and 5,420th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 243 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
