The Federal Republic of Benolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Thompson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.254 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 Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal District. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Benolian economy, worth 181 trillion Federal Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 80,525 Federal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, increasing numbers of children in Benolia have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. 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 Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Benolia is ranked 156,751st in the world and 8,294th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -8.12 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
