Population707 million


The Republic of Bananas2 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 707 million Bananas2ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 19.6%.

The all-consuming Bananas2ian economy, worth 65.7 trillion Bananas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 92,981 Bananas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Monkey sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, you need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bananas2's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bananas2 is ranked 142,607th in the world and 5,682nd in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 18.34 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
