The República Bananera of Magnifico Tropico is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by El Presidente with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.062 billion Tropicans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isla de Hierro. The average income tax rate is 25.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tropican economy, worth 422 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 137,876 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants who don't like the taste of Tropican Turnip Chips are immediately deported, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Pesos, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Magnifico Tropico's national animal is the Llama, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tropican Catholic Church.

Magnifico Tropico is ranked 69,106th in the world and 2nd in Solemnace for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.87 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
