The United States of Bentwaters is a massive, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.914 billion Bentwatersians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Bentwatersian economy, worth 676 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 172,806 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime is totally unknown. Bentwaters's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.
