The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.379 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 Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardis Hall. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth 658 trillion Widgets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,351 Widgets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Emma Peel panders to nontraditional families, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. 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 157,281st in the world and 7,969th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.21 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
