Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.682 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 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth 326 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 121,581 Widgets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, French Bananastan is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone. 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 25,654th in the world and 618th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 461.97450989168 Days.
