The Republic of Epic bannana is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its teetotalling pirates, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.194 billion Epic bannanans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrid. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Epic bannanan economy, worth 157 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 71,710 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

There's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, increasing numbers of children in Epic bannana have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Epic bannana's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is christian.

Epic bannana is ranked 27,366th in the world and 4th in Aura for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 23,040.1 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
