The Dominion of Benevolent Lifeforms is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 2.028 billion Benevolent Lifeformsians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipsis 17. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Benevolent Lifeformsian economy, worth 33.6 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, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 16,591 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smoking is banned in public areas, Benevolent Lifeformsian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent Lifeforms's national animal is the human-grey hybrid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Benevolent Lifeforms is ranked 107,846th in the world and 3rd in Benevolent States for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 973.98 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
