The Kingdom of Banija is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kabaka Albert III with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.265 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. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Banijan economy, worth 644 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 notable. Average income is 88,673 Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper. 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 United Church of Latter-Day Saints.

Banija is ranked 79,281st in the world and 56th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 76.39 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
