The Rogue Nation of BendyBen is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, hard-working population of 577 million Bendians 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.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.3%.

The strong Bendian economy, worth 46.6 trillion Doleres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,718 Doleres, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 228,816 per year while the poor average 22,756, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', everyone has the equal opportunity to have their wallet stolen, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BendyBen's national animal is the Bendian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

BendyBen is ranked 42,205th in the world and 38th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,862.22 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
