The Monopolymen of GreatestBanks is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Colonel Autumn with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.622 billion Accountants have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.5%.

The frighteningly efficient GreatestBanksian economy, worth a remarkable 1,493 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 265,596 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 945,126 per year while the poor average 53,735, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, many in GreatestBanks are born in the purple, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. GreatestBanks's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

GreatestBanks is ranked 163,701st in the world and 43rd in Democritus for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -8.37 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
