The Most Serene Republic of French Bananastan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emma Peel with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.092 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardis Hall. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient French Bananastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 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 common. Average income is an impressive 118,937 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 4,468th in the world and 169th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,842.79 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
