Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Great Federal Republic of Bentria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Fernando with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.197 billion Bentrians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maharlika. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bentrian economy, worth 231 trillion Fronzes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,415 Fronzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Bentrians, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bentria's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kolondasis.

Bentria is ranked 119,355th in the world and 195th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -2 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
