Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stacey LaBuena with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.264 billion Markians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal 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 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth 984 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 common. Average income is an impressive 157,239 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. 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 4,500th in the West Pacific and 108,369th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -143 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
