The Human Grey Hybrid Substitute of Benevolent 3 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Klaatu 78 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and fear of technology. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.208 billion Benevolents love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse 3. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Benevolent economy, worth 401 trillion Gorts 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, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. 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 39,315 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, the government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 3's national animal is the human-grey hybrid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gaianism.

Benevolent 3 is ranked 128,876th in the world and 1st in WORLD UNITED for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 539.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
