The Infinite Probabilities of Benevolent 00 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Monsieur Klaatu with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 11.878 billion les cadavres 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 juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the darkest shadows of the City of Light. The average income tax rate is 16.1%.

The very strong mort economy, worth 593 trillion bones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,961 bones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Aides are afraid to ask if Monsieur Klaatu wants a cup of tea or coffee, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, gun ownership is compulsory, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Benevolent 00's national animal is the cadavre, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Ideology of Sacred-profane Dichotomy.

Benevolent 00 is ranked 137,963rd in the world and 2nd in The Empire of the Dead for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 818.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
