The Second Commonwealth of Benjamin Mark is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alessandra McDonald-Heuston with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.44 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 5,950 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 322,682 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, Alessandra McDonald-Heuston's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, Markian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and international tensions are high as Benjamin Mark threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. 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 219,837th in the world and 81st in Lorania for Most Secular, with 0.92 Atheism Rate.
