Benevolent Thomas

Population15.154 billion

CapitalFort Triumph


The Warden Delegate of Benevolent Thomas is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Thomas with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.154 billion Benevolent enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Triumph. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Benevolent economy, worth a remarkable 1,936 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,768 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, and edutainment video games are taking Benevolent Thomas's students to the next level. 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 125,881st in the world and 137th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39.22 on the Rand Index.
