Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dana Chen with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.212 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, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,199 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 166,367 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A nation-wide cull of Golden Eagles is in effect, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Benjamin Mark to be bombproof, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 31st in the West Pacific and 1,769th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 174 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
