The Human Grey Hybrid Cleverness of Benevolent 31 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Klaatu 62 with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 8.033 billion Benevolents are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse 31. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Benevolent economy, worth 95.7 trillion Gorts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 11,907 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, and citizens who refuse to vote are guillotined. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 31'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 31 is ranked 124,156th in the world and 1st in The Pirate States for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.87 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
