The Malicious Artsy Angel of BendyBen is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, enslaved workforce, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, hard-working population of 765 million Bendians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.9%.

The very strong Bendian economy, worth 62.4 trillion Doleres a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,554 Doleres, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 270,993 per year while the poor average 18,303, a ratio of 14.8 to 1.

Leader has just been declared ruler of BendyBen in an international press conference, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BendyBen's national animal is the Bendian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

BendyBen is ranked 67,378th in the world and 58th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 96.18 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
