Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maritza Gonzales with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.348 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 government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 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 169,506 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and genetic researchers have been expelled. 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 30th in the West Pacific and 1,945th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 24 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
