The Rough Nation of Banyuwangi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joko Widodo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.532 billion Banyuwangians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Surabaya. The average income tax rate is 7.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Banyuwangian economy, worth a remarkable 2,465 trillion Rupiahs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 213,767 Rupiahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Banyuwangi's national animal is the Drunken Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Black magic.

Banyuwangi is ranked 5,711th in the world and 20th in belgium for Largest Black Market, with 325 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
