The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.817 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 enormous, 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 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion Widgets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,642 Widgets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Emma Peel panders to nontraditional families, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and euthanasia is legal. 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 24,881st in the world and 1,142nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 117,642.68 Standard Monetary Units.
