The People's Republic of Banabistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Milan Stojanovic with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.706 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaempfstok. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Banabistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,036 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 279,620 lire, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,788,393 per year while the poor average 17,899, a ratio of 99.9 to 1.

Banabistanis are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, the might of the entire Banabistani Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism. 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.

Banabistan is ranked 215,893rd in the world and 74th in Wysteria for Nudest, with 5.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
