The Democratic Republic of Benjastam is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Pickles with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.398 billion Benjastanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomasville. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Benjastanian economy, worth 656 trillion Benjastanian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,239 Benjastanian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benjastam's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Benjastam is ranked 84,289th in the world and 1st in Intercontinental Union of States for Most Extreme, scoring 20.52 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
