French Bananastan

The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.307 billion French Bananastanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardis Hall. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth 768 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,805 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 145,861st in the world and 7,452nd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
