The Rogue Nation of Bananoonza is a huge, safe nation, ruled by The Omnipotent Oona Baboona the VIII with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 785 million Baboons enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Banana city. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Baboon economy, worth 80.2 trillion Hard Bananas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,139 Hard Bananas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Bananoonza, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bananoonza's national animal is the Wild Baboon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bananoonza is ranked 12,987th in the world and 724th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 82.01 Years.
