The Republic of Bendan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.445 billion Bendanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berno. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bendanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 trillion Bendanian Pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,900 Bendanian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", there's no such thing as a safe bet, freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive, and beggars lack pockets for spare change. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bendan's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Bendan is ranked 5,641st in the world and 8th in Anteria for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,151.97 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
