The People's Republic of Banabistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Milan Stojanovic with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.251 billion Banabistanis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaempfstok. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Banabistani economy, worth 861 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 265,060 lire, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,439,103 per year while the poor average 2,945, a ratio of 828 to 1.
Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, patriots insist that size does matter, prisoners fit in their parole hearings around their spa treatments, and new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Banabistan's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.
