The People's Republic of Bananaistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.399 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrone. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bananamen economy, worth a remarkable 2,814 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,599 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 19,414th in the world and 97th in Forest for Largest Governments, scoring 30.03 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
