Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Calana Gonzales-Davis with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.599 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 1,076 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 163,086 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, Max Barry is this year's Miss Benjamin Mark, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 5,637th in the West Pacific and 120,534th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -128 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
