The Rogue Nation of Bananoonza is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 239 million Baboons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Baboon economy, worth 16.6 trillion Hard Bananas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,658 Hard Bananas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and the government is spending billions of Hard Bananas on helping citizens find spiritual enlightenment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bananoonza's national animal is the Wild Baboon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bananoonza is ranked 10,403rd in the world and 520th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
