The Great Federal Republic of Bentria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister John Fernando with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.146 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maharlika. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bentrian economy, worth 326 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 103,759 Fronzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians demand do-overs when they don't agree with election outcomes, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. 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 147,207th in the world and 91st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Fattest Citizens, with 8.29 Obesity Rate.
