The Starlight Empire of Benevolent Aliens is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.044 billion Benevolent Aliens 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse Epsilon. The average income tax rate is 30.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Benevolent Alien economy, worth 61.3 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 29,967 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, the Benevolent Aliens Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Leader is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, and convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes. 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 140,893rd in the world and 4th in Benevolent States for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 702.48 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
