The Fruity Folks of Mr Banana is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 7.215 billion Bananans 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 Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Bananan economy, worth 265 trillion Gold Bananas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 36,790 Gold Bananas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mr Banana's national animal is the Fruit Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mr Banana is ranked 119,869th in the world and 6th in Hippy Haven for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,985.04 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
