The Dogiate of Benuty is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Dogiate Council with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, devout population of 13.13 billion Benutyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Benutyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,250 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 95,206 Commonwealth Parcels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, cities in Benuty declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. 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 163,777th in the world and 8,802nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.46 Obesity Rate.
