The Dogiate of Benuty is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Dogiate Council with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 16.118 billion Benutyians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hargravia. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Benutyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,540 trillion Commonwealth Parcels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,556 Commonwealth Parcels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The credibility of anti-government demagogues is undermined by government claims that they smell like poo, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benuty's national animal is the Dirois Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Universalistic Judaism.

Benuty is ranked 154,893rd in the world and 7,126th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
