Benevolent Thomas

Population16.951 billion

CapitalFort Triumph


The Hero of Ferelden of Benevolent Thomas is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Thomas with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.951 billion Benevolent enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Triumph. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Benevolent economy, worth a remarkable 2,169 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,984 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Companies are turning to trained Owls for their most menial jobs, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and where there's smoke there's the Benevolent Forestry Department. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent Thomas's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Benevolent Thomas is ranked 10,218th in the world and 17th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Developed, scoring 90.12 on the Human Development Index.
