The Kingdom of Banija is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kabaka Mwanga with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 12.316 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 Defense. 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 a remarkable 1,168 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 extensive. Average income is 94,878 Shillings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 323,844 per year while the poor average 20,454, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

Women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, tourists call Banijan beach towns "the fine coastline", and the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 76,968th in the world and 44th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Armed, with 0.43 Weapons Per Person.
