The Republic of Binafra is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by President Agustín Calix with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 791 million Binafrans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sampó. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Binafran economy, worth 73.4 trillion Binafran Capes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 92,822 Binafran Capes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and murderers facing life in prison listen to long sermons on positive thinking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Binafra's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Binafra is ranked 29,778th in the world and 1,310th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 49.42 quips per hour.
