The People's Republic of BANNEDASTAN is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by BARON Guillaume Le Batard with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 765 million BANNEDASTANians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BATARDBURG. The average income tax rate is 53.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse BANNEDASTANian economy, worth 85.7 trillion juans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,034 juans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, BARON Guillaume Le Batard has just been declared ruler of BANNEDASTAN in an international press conference, and citizens frequently duel to decide who gets to go for jury duty. Crime is totally unknown. BANNEDASTAN's national animal is the mongolian beef, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BANNEDASTAN is ranked 43,967th in the world and 1st in sayggoodbyetohollywood for Safest, scoring 99.75 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
