The United States of Bentwaters is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.861 billion Bentwatersians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bentwatersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 184,569 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. Crime is totally unknown. Bentwaters's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Bentwaters is ranked 7,689th in the world and 281st in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.64 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
