The Federation of Banandonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bill Nye the Statesmen Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.997 billion Banandonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicquita. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Banandonian economy, worth 269 trillion USD and trades a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,183 USD and trades, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, Bill Nye the Statesmen Guy's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', and sometimes a whole prison wing will house a single prisoner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Banandonia's national animal is the Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Any or None-faiths must not harm others.

Banandonia is ranked 138,058th in the world and 307th in Forest for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4.69 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
