The Infinite Astronomical Units of Benevolent One is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Klaatu 2 with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 9.848 billion Benevolents have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse-Sector 1. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The strong Benevolent economy, worth 537 trillion Gorts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 54,560 Gorts, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, one can walk from one side of Ellipse-Sector 1 to the other without setting foot on Benevolent soil, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, and people experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent One'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 One is ranked 183,362nd in the world and 17th in Paradise for Most Extreme, scoring 6.6 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
