The Conglomerate Corporations of BNL Corporation is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Multiversal CEO Shelby Forthright with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.834 billion BnL Consumers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient BnLian economy, worth a remarkable 1,422 trillion BnL Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 243,773 BnL Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,487,091 per year while the poor average 17,653, a ratio of 84.2 to 1.

BnLian TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, the latest political memes depict Multiversal CEO Shelby Forthright as an overly-choreographed robot, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, and BnLian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. BNL Corporation's national animal is the Monopoly Guy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BNL Corporation is ranked 149,317th in the world and 5,171st in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.55 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
