The People's Republic of Banabistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Milan Stojanovic with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.234 billion Banabistanis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaempfstok. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Banabistani economy, worth 859 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 265,796 lire, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,445,869 per year while the poor average 2,953, a ratio of 828 to 1.

Citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and the nation has learned that pulling out is messy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Banabistan's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Banabistan is ranked 20,917th in the world and 727th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 36 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
