The Queen's State of Bentley Black is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 10.003 billion Bentley Blackians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.
The strong Bentley Blackian economy, worth 673 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 67,324 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 457,724 per year while the poor average 3,617, a ratio of 126 to 1.
The tenet of free speech is held dear, voting is voluntary, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bentley Black's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
