The Second Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Alessandra McDonald-Heuston with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.47 billion Markians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 5,963 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 322,888 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime is totally unknown. Benjamin Mark's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Benjamin Mark is ranked 222,521st in the world and 77th in Lorania for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -45.23 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
