The People's Republic of Benjina is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Ben with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.324 billion Mortish are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trisov. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mortish economy, worth 175 trillion Morts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 52,845 Morts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and monochrome green ECO-B products adorn the supermarket shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benjina's national animal is the Eagle of Peace, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Gastcund.

Benjina is ranked 7,946th in the world and 76th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,569.81 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
