The Colony of Benjycani is a large, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The quiet, industrious population of 50 million Benjycanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 39.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Benjycanian economy, worth 1.83 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,687 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, only native-born Benjycanians who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, and postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benjycani's national animal is the cucumber, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Benjycani is ranked 76,716th in the world and 3,677th in the South Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 103 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
