The Republic of Bankowiata is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Strong AI with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 1.23 billion Bankowiatans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bankowiata City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bankowiatan economy, worth 175 trillion Virtual Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,338 Virtual Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime 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 239,006th in the world and 9,062nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 27.85 Whatever.
