The Republic of Banite is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, national health service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.807 billion Imperials 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republic City. The average income tax rate is 81.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,639 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 209,955 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, Leader has been nicknamed 'Robomop', and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Banite's national animal is the krayt Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Banite is ranked 251,557th in the world and 6,589th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -24 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
