The Banana Republic of Stanisiti is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Adam Greenwood with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.11 billion Stanisitians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chepnard. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Stanisitian economy, worth 104 trillion Kreplaches a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,837 Kreplaches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stanisiti's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
