The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.943 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 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth 485 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 123,060 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 61,301st in the world and 3,443rd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,588.29 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
