The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.856 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 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth 596 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 common. Average income is an impressive 122,888 Widgets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the French Bananastanian Space Agency, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and Emma Peel panders to nontraditional families. 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 2,250th in the world and 123rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
