The People's Republic of Banabistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Milan Stojanovic with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.295 billion Banabistanis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaempfstok. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Banabistani economy, worth 877 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 266,388 lire, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,452,189 per year while the poor average 2,948, a ratio of 831 to 1.
Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Banabistan's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.
