The Republic of Bankowiata is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.604 billion 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankowiata City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 806 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 223,685 Virtual Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. 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 268,391st in the world and 13,860th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.35 crimes per hour.
