The Puppet State of Bananvania is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Adamiani with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate and compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 2.687 billion Bananvanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ulania. The average income tax rate is 11.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bananvanian economy, worth 189 trillion Pingoles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,651 Pingoles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners who refuse to hire ex-cons often wake up with a Turtle's head in their bed, high school bands practice by moonlight, Pray To Elvato has been named as Bananvania's national religion, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Bananvania's national animal is the Turtle and its national religion is Pray To Elvato.

Bananvania is ranked 222,053rd in the world and 6th in The Nation of Domination for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -12.25 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
