The Human Grey Hybrid Telepathy of Benevolent 17 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Klaatu 12 with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 10.173 billion Benevolents 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse 17. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Benevolent economy, worth 613 trillion Gorts a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,297 Gorts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Nocturnal light pollution is mostly blue, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 17's national animal is the human-grey hybrid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gaianism.

Benevolent 17 is ranked 141,151st in the world and 1st in Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.53 Crimes Per Hour.
