The Banana Republic of Stanisiti is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Adam Greenwood with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.099 billion Stanisitians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chepnard. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Stanisitian economy, worth 102 trillion Kreplaches a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,116 Kreplaches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stanisiti's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Stanisiti is ranked 23,313th in the world and 842nd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,529.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
