The Empire of The Band Council is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Noah with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.333 billion Band Councilians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ba Sing Se. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Band Councilian economy, worth 157 trillion gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,865 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Band Council's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Band Council is ranked 11,508th in the world and 1st in That One Place for Most Secular, with 89.94 Atheism Rate.
