Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Bankstown City is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.036 billion Bankstown Cityians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankstown CBD. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bankstown Cityian economy, worth 545 trillion Australian Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 67,853 Australian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tabloids coo over Leader's expected child, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", and the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Bankstown City has found 1 easter egg). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bankstown City's national animal is the Ibis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bankstown City is ranked 9,725th in the world and 9th in Australia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,748.1 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
