OverviewFactbookPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Bankowiata is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, prohibition of alcohol, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.916 billion Bankowiatans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 915 trillion Virtual Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 233,711 Virtual Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Virtual Coin mansions, interest in globalism never flags, and "It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination. 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 249,256th in the world and 10,308th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
