The Independent State of Benween Occidental is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Esperanza Bilsa Nogues with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 4.72 billion western benweenians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vedelant. The average income tax rate is 34.0%.

The strong western benweenian economy, worth 292 trillion Western Weens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,039 Western Weens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Benween Occidental's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Benween Occidental is ranked 220,224th in the world and 3rd in Union Mundialista for Most Extreme, scoring 4.79 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
