The Viking Commonwealth of Bantarus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High King Magnus II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.15 billion Bantarusyans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akureyri. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bantarusyan economy, worth 137 trillion Bantarusyan Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 119,259 Bantarusyan Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bike rage is all the rage, faceless corporations are expected to assume parental responsibility over millions of teenagers, heterosexuality is considered positive proof of fitness to parent, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bantarus's national animal is the World Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is WIP 🚧.

Bantarus is ranked 36,815th in the world and 623rd in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 1,502.02 prayers per hour.
