The Free State of Empire of Bentopia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ben with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.483 billion Bentopians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blestlow. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Bentopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,304 trillion Bonds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 153,758 Bonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Colonial subjects have Bentopian culture shoved down their throats, ghost regiments exist only on paper, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, and a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Bentopia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
