Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Wen Chu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.421 billion Markians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 2,236 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 214,590 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, strategic economic sectors are controlled by the state, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Golden Eagleball fields. 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 158,317th in the world and 7,193rd in The East Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -12.96 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
