The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.605 billion French Bananastanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardis Hall. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,049 trillion Widgets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,989 Widgets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Emma Peel panders to nontraditional families, and truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. French Bananastan's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none of anyone's business.

French Bananastan is ranked 155,172nd in the world and 7,465th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -1.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
