The Human-Grey Hybrid Oversight of Benevolent 78 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Klaatu 593 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 10.07 billion Benevolents love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, although Welfare, Administration, and Defense are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse-Sector 78. The average income tax rate is 65.2%.

The large but underdeveloped Benevolent economy, worth 356 trillion Gorts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,358 Gorts, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

It's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, and the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 78'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 78 is ranked 40,642nd in the world and 1st in New India for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 65.24 Effective Tax Rate.
