The People's Republic of Bananaistan is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 23.247 billion Bananamen enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrone. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bananamen economy, worth a remarkable 2,459 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,790 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning. Crime is totally unknown. Bananaistan's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bananaistan is ranked 292,061st in the world and 281st in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -317.34 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
