The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stephanie Crenstwick with an even hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.338 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The Benjamin Mark Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Dollar.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 4,604th in the West Pacific and 122,186th in the world for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -12 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
