|Faith||De facto Atheism|
The Democratic Republic of Benthamania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jeremy Godwin Parfit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.24 billion Benthamanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sidgwickton. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Benthamanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,171 trillion hedons 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 223,512 hedons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown. Benthamania's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is De facto Atheism.
