The Human Grey Hybrid Beauty of Benevolent 5 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Klaatu 19 with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.165 billion Benevolents are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipsis 5. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Benevolent economy, worth 683 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 67,208 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Childhood friends of Klaatu 19 are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 5'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 5 is ranked 41,808th in the world and 1st in Aurora for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 64 Effective Tax Rate.
