The Republic of Bankowiata is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 983 million 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankowiata City. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 134 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 136,864 Virtual Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. 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 61,315th in the world and 2,577th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
