The People's Republic of Bananaistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.07 billion Bananamen enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrone. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bananamen economy, worth a remarkable 2,329 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 common. Average income is an impressive 105,541 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 41,512th in the world and 147th in Forest for Most Income Equality, scoring 64.54 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
