Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Shenze Coldfang with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11 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, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, 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 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Markian economy, worth a remarkable 2,463 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 223,999 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Builders across Benjamin Mark are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. 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 75,923rd in the world and 3,471st in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 71 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
