The Human-Grey Hybrid Moonlight of Benevolent 92 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Klaatu 255 with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 9.892 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellipse-Sector 92. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Benevolent economy, worth 215 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, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 21,805 Gorts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have lived their entire lives in Benevolent 92 are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benevolent 92'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 92 is ranked 36,758th in the world and 1st in Blue Moon for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 67.12 Effective Tax Rate.
