The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stephanie Arrelanos with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 16.39 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson Village. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 4,996 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 304,822 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, the fattest folk in Benjamin Mark look to be the happiest ones, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. 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 99,005th in the world and 7th in The Clover Confederation for Most Income Equality, scoring 27.6 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
