The Semi-Strange Area of Benjabobaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Benjabob with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.939 billion Benjabobarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benjabob's Palace. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Benjabobarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,112 trillion paper thingies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,364 paper thingies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Benjabob is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benjabobaria's national animal is the kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Benjabobaria is ranked 159,673rd in the world and 5,767th in Osiris for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 37.45 Workforce Participation Rate.
