The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jessica Ramos with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.465 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 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 98%. 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 number of students attending university has reached a record high, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and sex changes are routinely performed at Benjamin Mark's hospitals. 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 661st in the West Pacific and 17,837th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 90 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
