The Dogiate of Benuty is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Dogiate Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 17.441 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 1,666 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 22,368th in the world and 1,195th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.84 on the Human Development Index.
