Population2.794 billion

LeaderPresident Elias


The Republic of Benolia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Elias with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.794 billion Benolians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Benolian economy, worth 320 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,681 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in President Elias's bedroom, police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program, the family of President Elias bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions, and foreign powers often deal with problems that Benolia can't handle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benolia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Benolia is ranked 6,183rd in the world and 300th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 7,506.66 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
