The Starlight Empire of Benevolent Aliens is a massive, safe nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.447 billion Benevolent Aliensians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Benevolent Aliensian economy, worth 41.7 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 black market in Tourism, Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. 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 28,850 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, a major religion has been named as Benevolent Aliens's national religion, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Benevolent Aliens in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Benevolent Aliens's national animal is the human-grey hybrid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Benevolent Aliens is ranked 226,383rd in the world and 3rd in Benevolent States for Most Developed, scoring 47.15 on the Human Development Index.
