The Commonwealth of South Bengal is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Simon Ghosh with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.936 billion Bengalis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calcutta. The average income tax rate is 6.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bengali economy, worth a remarkable 1,147 trillion Bengal Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 232,495 Bengal Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, punitive tariffs protect local industry, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. South Bengal's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

South Bengal is ranked 135,802nd in the world and 242nd in Enadia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,045.63 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
