The United States of Bentwaters is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.763 billion Bentwatersians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 47.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Bentwatersian economy, worth 675 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 179,524 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime is totally unknown. Bentwaters's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.
