The People's Republic of Banabistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Milan Stojanovic with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.734 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 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Banabistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 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 280,525 lire, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,801,071 per year while the poor average 17,771, a ratio of 101 to 1.

Major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Banabistan is ranked 167,161st in the world and 60th in Wysteria for Highest Poor Incomes, with 17,771.28 Standard Monetary Units.
