The Empire of Benisfield is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Zaskovon Bukisak IV with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.042 billion Benisfieldians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benisfield. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Benisfieldian economy, worth 112 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,135 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Benisfieldian justice, and Jennifer Government is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benisfield's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Paganism.
