The Democratic Republic of Bantuardhi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Nyah Nasim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.517 billion Bantu 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 prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kimataifa. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bantu economy, worth a remarkable 1,049 trillion Sarafus a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,583 Sarafus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Bantu language, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bantuardhi's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bantuardhi is ranked 169,166th in the world and 5,082nd in Balder for Most Influential, scoring 22 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
