The Eternal Empire of The Benain empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Empress Jessica I with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.009 billion Benainians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Benium. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Benainian economy, worth 531 trillion Benain dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 176,567 Benain dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Benain empire's national animal is the Grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Native Catholicism.

The Benain empire is ranked 171,069th in the world and 24th in The united nations of liberalia for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.94 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
