Location: The North Pacific
The Confederal Directorate of Greater Banitia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Sophie with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.006 billion Banitians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auralaide. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Banitian economy, worth a remarkable 2,054 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,671 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, the state pays for care of easily preventable illnesses, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and it turns out that money can buy you happiness. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Banitia's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Phaetism.
