The Human-Grey Hybrid Survivors of Benevolent 89 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Klaatu 783 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 10.319 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benevolent 89 City. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Benevolent economy, worth 400 trillion Gorts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 38,828 Gorts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, surveillance cameras are banned, Klaatu 783 is said to pay a tithe to a violent sect, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime is totally unknown. Benevolent 89'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 89 is ranked 186,788th in the world and 1st in Tropical Isles for Most Secular, with 13.38 Atheism Rate.
