The Human Grey Hybrid Reverence of Benevolent 20 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Klaatu 173 with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.473 billion Benevolents are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse 20. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Benevolent economy, worth 300 trillion Gorts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 28,673 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 20'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 20 is ranked 132,411th in the world and 1st in The Cosmos for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 326.96 Tourists Per Hour.
