The United States of Bentwaters is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.847 billion Bentwatersians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Bentwatersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,077 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,353 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.
A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. 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.
