The Democratic Republic of Bang A Bongnia is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.026 billion Bangles 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 63.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Bangle economy, worth 258 trillion Pebbles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,697 Pebbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, and shorter foreigners are often forcibly deported on suspicion of working for the World Assembly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bang A Bongnia's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bang A Bongnia is ranked 18,124th in the world and 880th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 215.87 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
