American Samizdat

Monday, October 30, 2006. *
Banana Republic is a weekly editorial cartoon series that explores the political and social culture of Amnesia, a mythical Third-World country that could not be more different from our own. Amnesia, ruled by Generalissimo Wally, grapples with the problems of a typical banana republic, namely corruption, mounting debt, a widening chasm between the underclass and the rich, one-party rule, a rubber-stamp parliament, crackdowns on dissent, state propaganda, domestic spying, torture, secret prisons, questionable elections, curtailed civil rights, imprisonment without trial, an endless guerilla insurgency, and on and on.
