The People's Republic of Bananaistan is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.377 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, 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 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bananamen economy, worth a remarkable 1,725 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 105,354 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 2,925th in the world and 31st in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,137.61 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
