The Banana Stand Republic

Population655 million

AnimalBanana Duck

The United States of The Banana Stand Republic is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 655 million Bananas are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The very strong Banana economy, worth 41.7 trillion Bananas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 63,628 Bananas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 238,471 per year while the poor average 11,870, a ratio of 20.1 to 1.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, Leader has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Banana Stand Republic's national animal is the Banana Duck.

The Banana Stand Republic is ranked 15,449th in the world and 11th in Changuu for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 20.09 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
