The Conglomerate Companies of BNL Corporation is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Multiversal CEO Shelby Forthright with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.486 billion BnL Consumers enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient BnLian economy, worth a remarkable 1,669 trillion BnL Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 257,356 BnL Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,368,634 per year while the poor average 2,854, a ratio of 829 to 1.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, baseball caps are the new fashion trend, and autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. BNL Corporation's national animal is the Monopoly Guy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BNL Corporation is ranked 1,443rd in the world and 12th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Secular, with 99.09 Atheism Rate.
