The Principality of Bananaaaaa is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by HRH King Frank Le Eota with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.109 billion Bananaaaaas 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, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odingar­r. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bananaaaa economy, worth 545 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 89,316 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bananaaaaa's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bananaaaaa is ranked 11,760th in the world and 658th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 88.6 on the Human Development Index.
