The Queen's State of Benafi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.659 billion Benafians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The thriving Benafian economy, worth 932 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Average income is 47,413 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,890 per year while the poor average 4,953, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government is avowedly atheist, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Benafi's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Benafi is ranked 69,459th in the world and 5th in London for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
