The People's Republic of Banabistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Milan Stojanovic with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.281 billion Banabistanis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaempfstok. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Banabistani economy, worth 871 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 265,580 lire, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,443,890 per year while the poor average 2,951, a ratio of 828 to 1.
A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, a third of Banabistanis are e-certified CEOs, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Banabistan's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.
