The People's Republic of Bananaistan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.296 billion Bananamen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrone. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bananamen economy, worth a remarkable 1,612 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,422 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning. Crime is totally unknown. Bananaistan's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bananaistan is ranked 810th in the world and 6th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
