The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jessica Ramos with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.494 billion Markians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 99%. 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 nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and all forms of advertising are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Dollar.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 3,899th in the West Pacific and 111,821st in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
