The Republic of Bankowiata is a huge, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 243 million 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bankowiatan economy, worth 21.7 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 89,122 Virtual Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Divorcees attending custody disputes tend to wear black-and-white zigzag patterns, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and Bankowiatan scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 199,653rd in the world and 11,097th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.74 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
