The Dominion of Mutuum Beneficium is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.012 billion Mutuum Beneficiumians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Mutuum Beneficiumian economy, worth 6.56 trillion gold pieceses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 6,481 gold pieceses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Courtrooms can be a little sketchy, politicians spend a lot of time hanging around kids' playgrounds, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mutuum Beneficium's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Mutuum Beneficium is ranked 260,715th in the world and 6,539th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.49 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
