The Empire of Benisfield is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zaskovon Bukisak IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.081 billion Benisfieldians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benisfield. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Benisfieldian economy, worth 122 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,574 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Other people's happiness is the biggest cause of Benisfieldian unhappiness, the nation's hospitals are criticized for caring more about profits than patients, CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, and big game hunters travel to Benisfield to try their hand at shark-shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benisfield's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Paganism.

Benisfield is ranked 127,756th in the world and 537th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2.45 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
