“The Right Country to Live In.”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the West Pacific
The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ashley Brightman with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.277 billion Markians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
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.
Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the Benjamin Mark Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. 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.
