The Human Grey Hybrid Telepathy of Benevolent 17 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Klaatu 12 with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 8.585 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 506 trillion Gorts a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,994 Gorts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is reining in public spending, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and Air Benevolent 17 tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel. 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 126,251st in the world and 1st in Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.84 Kickbacks Per Hour.
