The Kingdom of Banija is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kabaka Mwanga with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, devout population of 8.339 billion Banijans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Busukuma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Banijan economy, worth 763 trillion Shillings a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 91,554 Shillings, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, and Kabaka Mwanga's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Banija's national animal is the African Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Puritan Church of Latter-Day Saints.

Banija is ranked 20,976th in the world and 31st in Atlantian Oceania for Most Beautiful Environments, with 950.18 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
