The Republic of Bankowiata is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 716 million Bankowiatans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankowiata City. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 84.9 trillion Virtual Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 118,515 Virtual Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bankowiata's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bankowiata is ranked 10,227th in the world and 571st in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,668.54 Tourists Per Hour.
