OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Bankowiata is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 1.252 billion Bankowiatans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankowiata City. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 179 trillion Virtual Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,260 Virtual Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, Strong AI always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bankowiata's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bankowiata is ranked 241,378th in the world and 9,210th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -551.97 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
