The Free Republic of Banyam NN is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ngong am Tungwam Chon Ung with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, restrictive gun laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.667 billion Ban are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gmwong. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ban economy, worth a remarkable 1,552 trillion Nam Yons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 273,934 Nam Yons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,018,308 per year while the poor average 11,266, a ratio of 179 to 1.

Homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, an Amyong Tourist Association survey has rated Banyam NN #1 for number twos, and other people's happiness is the biggest cause of Ban unhappiness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Banyam NN's national animal is the Namchang, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is state atheism.

Banyam NN is ranked 1,318th in the world and 1st in Amyong for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 179.15 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
