The People's Republic of Communist Benin is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mathieu Kérékou with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 10.057 billion Beninese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porto Novo. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Beninese economy, worth 633 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 62,953 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, and military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Communist Benin's national animal is the West African lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Communist Benin is ranked 169,998th in the world and 41st in International Socialism for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
