Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.3 billion French Bananastanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardis Hall. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth 277 trillion Widgets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,537 Widgets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, Ardis Hall's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the French Bananastanian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. French Bananastan's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none of anyone's business.

French Bananastan is ranked 145,635th in the world and 7,278th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
