Benton Harbour

Population5.817 billion


The Queendom of Benton Harbour is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 5.817 billion Benton Harbourians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 25.7%.

The strong Benton Harbourian economy, worth 282 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 48,550 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary and deer are considered a delicacy. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benton Harbour's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Benton Harbour is ranked 85,889th in the world and 122nd in Hsiao Han for Most Average, scoring 37.49 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
