The Republic of Bankowiata is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 1.198 billion Bankowiatans 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankowiata City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 170 trillion Virtual Gold Coins 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 142,633 Virtual Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the world still seems flat to some people in space, the Hedgehog is a protected species, and political detractors refer to Strong AI as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bankowiata's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bankowiata is ranked 68,647th in the world and 2,529th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 169,388 Standard Monetary Units.
