The Allied States of BennionClan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Le Conseil Principal with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.644 billion Escarans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athènouvelles. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BennionClanian economy, worth 160 trillion Denors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 97,484 Denors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BennionClan's national animal is the Ickabog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BennionClan is ranked 231,237th in the world and 4th in Mediterranea for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10.86 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
