LeaderLe Conseil Principal


The Allied States of BennionClan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Le Conseil Principal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.814 billion Escarans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athènouvelles. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BennionClanian economy, worth 176 trillion Denors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 97,058 Denors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BennionClan's national animal is the Ickabog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BennionClan is ranked 204,575th in the world and 3rd in Mediterranea for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.45 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
