Benevolent Universe

Population1.185 billion

Animalhuman-grey hybrid

The Starlit Empire of Benevolent Universe is a massive, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.185 billion Benevolent Universeans 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 Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Benevolent Universean economy, worth 33.1 trillion Gorts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,939 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, the government's suggestions box is curiously empty these days, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent Universe's national animal is the human-grey hybrid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Benevolent Universe is ranked 176,872nd in the world and 2nd in Benevolent States for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 437.47 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
