The Republic of Bankowiata is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.357 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, outspoken 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 average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 201 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,798 Virtual Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime 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 216,282nd in the world and 8,520th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
